Lion being released July 20-Confirmed!

Here is the link from Apple's conference call

Apple CFO Oppenheimer: Lion launches tomorrow | 9to5Mac | Apple Intelligence

..and from Tuaw...


"Just confirmed from the earnings call: OS X Lion will launch tomorrow, July 20. This was an unusual way to announce the launch, but it confirms the week's rumors."

Lucky. Good luck on getting it. The server's are going to be in and out all day tomorrow. The last thing we need is a server crash like previous Apple releases... (pre-order's of iPhone 4, etc)

Tread cautiously don't get bitten - some cool stuff but do a clone first and perhaps even test pilot it on the clone.

How long do you think it will take to download on a good day?

Took me 40 minutes a couple weeks ago. Likely be slower on release day.

No danger here. The gold master is a really safe install.

Exciting! I love new toys: I just hope Lion fixes this irritating Bluetooth bug with my Mini. BT stopped working last year and when I bought an external BT adapter that works off and on apparently at random. Makes syncing my phone very unreliable

I'm guess there is no way to download this once and distribute it to other Macs on my home network? I'll have to just download it once for every Mac?

Once downloaded on one Mac, you can just copy the installer app to other Macs to install. Keep in mind that once Lion is finished installing, it will delete the installer app.
