Wow! That’s a bombshell. We expected Lion would be available on DVD, USB stick and on the Mac App Store, but Phil Schiller says that it’s a Mac App Store exclusive… and he says it’ll be the easiest upgrade you’ve ever seen.
This should kill Hackintoshing and piracy of Lion, by the way.
“You need about 4GB in storage. And because it’s part of the Mac App Store it follows the rules… you can use it on all of your authorized devices,” says Schiller.
Price: $29.99, just like Snow Leopard.
And the developer preview? It’s available today.
As for widescale release? July.
