The second good news is that users from all these countries can get the latest and greatest version of the Mac OS X operating system, mainly Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. The operating system was released on the 20th of July and is available for purchase for the low price of $29.99 (Lion Server is available for $49.99). In the first day after its launch, it had already been downloaded more than 1 million times. It has a grand total of 250 new features to offers, like the following:

- New Multi-Touch gestures and fluid animations.
- Mission Control gives you a bird’s eye view of every app and window running on your Mac by combining Expose, full screen apps, Dashboard and Spaces into one.
- The Mac App Store built-into the operating system.
- A completely redesigned Mail app.
- Resume is a new feature that brings your apps back exactly how you left them when you restart your Mac or quit and relaunch an app.
- Auto Save automatically and continuously saves your documents as you work.
- Versions automatically records the history of a document as you create it. It also gives you an easy way to browse, revert and copy and paste from previous versions.
- Automatic peer-to-peer (P2P) wireless connections are established with nearby Macs with AirDrop. Thus you can easily find, connect and share files with other Macs.

Intego, company that specializes in providing security solutions for Mac, advises users to back their data up before upgrading to Lion.
