    We’re updating. Press refresh.

    We’ve been waiting for ages to hear the details and now we finally have them. Apple’s Phil Schiller and Craig Ferericchi have taken the stage to fill us in.

    Touting the fact that Macs as a whole have outpaced the PC industry in the past year with 54 million total Mac users worldwide, Schiller states that the industry wants to copy Apple. In the 10 years since OS X launched, much has changed.

    Lion will have over 250 new features, with 10 being discussed today:

    Multitouch Gestures: All of the same gestures that you’ve grown to love in your iOS devices will now be featured in OS X.

    Full-Screen Apps: No more borders, no more windows. There will be built-in tools of Lion to make apps run full screen, taking the work of the developers.
