OS X Lion Install And Hands On

Today OS X Lion has finally arrived and I thought I would share my first impressions with you on the final release version. So without wasting any time I download the final release version from the Mac App Store and installed in on my iMac. The file download size is 3.74GB and once downloaded popped up a window asking to install.

After a quick restart the new install started counting down from around 30 minutes but took a lot less on my iMac, but the install time will depend on the machine its being installed on.The installation process was extremely straight forward with no problems or glitches of any kind.

With regards the look of the new Os X Lion, even though there have been a few tweaks to the overall style of Lion OS X in certain places such as menus, applications and the like, the overall feel is very similar to OS X Snow Leopard. One thing that is noticeable within OS X Lion is the speed at which commands are process when compared to the older OS X Snow Leopard.
