Andy Ihnatko's review of Mac OS X Lion
Great stuff, as usual, from the Jedi Master of tech reviews...
Andy on the reversed direction of scrolling... The good news is that (like the invisible scrollbars), you can go into System Preferences and change it back. But Apple couldn't help but be snippy about it: the Preference pane identifies Lion's default scroll behavior as "Natural."
But don't get the wrong impression, I think he likes it!...
But when all that's done, Lion is packed with protein. $29 for system-wide version control and autosave? Sold. $29 for new editions of Safari, Mail, Address Book, and Calendar? Sold. . . . Of iChat, Preview, TextEdit, and AirDrop? . . . For the new, killer security, disaster-recovery and remote-restore tools? Yes, and hell yes. Just on features alone, Lion is a terrific bargain.
