that actually would be bad, since that would mean apple would then be controlling what apps you can, and cannot have on your desktop. It;s one thing say on a phone, or small mobile device, but your computer?

It's bad for both. I understand the need on mobile, but I don't have to like it.

There's a bit of confusion about the # of Computers allowed, but some sites (TUAW among others I think) are saying they think it's 10 for the Max.

Now if they let me put it on a USB stick or an external drive and run from there I'll be happy enough.
The recovery partition is only ~750MB, not 4GB. And as Denis Nedry pointed out - it's very possibly just a .DMG that the EFI can expand and boot from when needed (therefore not actually re-partitioning your drive on you).

And I've gotta assume there *will* be a way to put the installer on alternate media. Doesn't mean it'll be easy or accessible to the public the way an installer DVD is, but all of the Developer Preview Builds so far have been downloadable and then can be put onto a USB stick or external hard drive.

Does anyoe else think that it's hilarious what a "big feature" full screen apps has become?

Really?

Hasn't that been available in Windows since v1.0?

I really hope there is some sort of disc option, or an installer you can burn to dvd and use. I have 6 macs at the office and would hate to have to download the 4 gig file on each one to install OS X. And again so many people do not have high speed internet, or have bandwidth limits. This would be a slow download for many and just a real pain. This is the first version of OS X I will be standing back and waiting till I need to install, not like all the other versions from 10.0 which I installed on day 1 of release.

It was the first thing I was confused about when I bought my first mac some 10 months ago. How in the hell do I get Safari to go full screen? The someone on here told me it sized to the size it needs be. A bunch of hog wash I say. It doesn't bother me now and I am used to it but glad its in there now.

On another note, the 10 Lion features shown yesterday was nothing new that wasn't already shown as a preview at the last conference which was either for the Music or for the iPad I forget.

Only available on the app store.

So only people with Snow Leopard installed on their mac can upgrade to Lion?

If I recall correctly. I couldn't install the app store on my Mac Mini running 10.5.8. It said I needed Snow Leopard.
