Have you seen the next version of Mac OS called Lion? Apple has released the first developer preview for the world to see. Much of the obvious change is its iOS theme.

New users may like using the LaunchPad as it mimicks the same way in iOS. Advanced and existing users may still opt to use the Finder, Dock and Spotlight for quick access to their apps.

The list actually goes on. There are certainly new features and big enhancements to existing ones with the new OSX but comestics-wise, it certainly revolves much on the iOS. The rest, comes under the hood.

Another iOS-like behavior is its approach to multitasking. Running apps are no longer denoted by a little “light” in the Dock. Just like iOS, Lion is designed to manage system resources for the user in an effort to make multitasking completely seamless.

The system can freeze applications in the background, kill processes or just do whatever it takes to preserve the user experience. I am not sure though if power users may like this you can always see what application are running by hitting control-tab or by turning the lights back on in preferences.

What do you think?
