    I’d jump up and down and scream like a little girl if I wasn’t so busy yawning.  Or if I’d bought Apple stock when I could afford it back in 2005 (you putz!!)

    I’m so ready to meet the king.

    Well, Apple has just released an update via Software Update called “Migration Assistant Update for Mac” with this explanation: “This update addresses an issue with the Migration Assistant application in Mac OS X Snow Leopard that prevents transfer of your personal data, settings, and compatible applications from a Mac running Mac OS X Snow Leopard to a new Mac running Mac OS X Lion.” So Lion coming tomorrow is no surprised.

    New migration assistant is available through software update

    does anyone know if there will be a multiple user option with Lion…I am referring to able to load Lion on more than one computer if you own more than one Mac?

  12. Soho22 says:

    Yes! Bring it on. Can’t wait to slam it onto my new SSD.

  14. Roby145 says:

    You can load Lion onto 10 Macs. Just sign in with the same Apple ID and Password on each mac and go to purchases. 

    Apple even mentioned in it’s WWDC Keynote. :)

    Hope that helps

    No Rosetta, no Lion for me. :(

    holy shit, dude STOP. YOU ARE SO ANNOYING! STOP. LEADING. US. TO. YOUR. SITE. NOW EITHER GTFO OR STOP LEAVING COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR SITE! God, haven’t you learned already with the other 5000 users telling you to stop? Just go. Go.

  18. unusedcrayon says:

    Ok, its 1:45am right now, meaning I can imitate the feeling of staying up all night to get a apple product, at home, without having to deal with other people. I’m ok with this :P

  19. djrobsd says:

    No thanks I’ll wait a couple months for people to loose their data, see their machines crash in agony, and pray that Apple has the bugs worked out by then.  I’m usually an early adopter, but not this time.  

  20. Mohamed Elshanshoury says:

    guys i seriously need to know if a backup is necessary… i don’t have an external hard drive and getting one could be very hard !!  so do i 100% need a backup or is it just if something goes wrong ??

  21. unusedcrayon says:

    A backup is not necessary, but I highly recommend it. Something like the guest account bug may be in lion, so be careful.

  22. Yaz Khoury says:

    Thank you, heeloliver, couldn’t have said it better myself. I wonder if COM can block him for spamming the comment section…

  23. Mohamed Elshanshoury says:

    I’m very sorry to bother, but what in gods name is the guest account bug ?!  and if god forbid it happens, can’t i overcome it someway or another, maybe by taking a backup then formatting my disk ? ( i might then go to an apple store or something )..

  24. unusedcrayon says:

    The guest account bug was something in the first version of snow leopard, which when you logged to your guest account, then back into another account, you lost all your files. It was fixed ages ago.

    I highly doubt something like that will be in lion, but you never know. You can’t really avoid things like that, that is one of the reason why backing up is recommend.

  25. Janzal Karlo Sonza says:

    Thank you!!… We don’t need his site anyways… That’s why we’re at CoM! 

  26. Mohamed Elshanshoury says:

    Thank u :)

  27. Antony says:

    Well, OS X 10.8 won’t have Rosetta either, so…

  28. Ciccio Willy says:

    me too XD

  29. Ciccio Willy says:


    You can load Lion on 5 Mac.
    Exactly like all other Mac App Store Application

  30. kavok says:

    Update: 08:42 ET Apple Store is back up with new Lion graphics for laptops, etc. New MacBook Air and Mac Mini are confirmed. Link to Lion says it’s available but when it tries to run the App Store, nothing shows up.
