OS X Lion Prediction

When OS Lion ships, it will be free if you download it via the Mac App store. It’ll cost $29, just like Snow Leopard, if you buy a boxed version in a retail store. Why will it cost more? It’ll be a convenience fee, basically, so you don’t have to burn your own disc. And when I say disc, I mean that Lion will come exclusively on a small USB thumb drive.

Believe that shit.

    I’d say you’re right about the $29 convenience fee for a retail copy, but I doubt it’ll be free through the App Store, if only for accounting reasons.

    I also agree that the retail version will likely be on a usb stick.

    So, I’m predicting you’re 2 for 3.

    Free? Awesome.
    But a thumb drive? I may want it like that anyway. It’s like the extras they put in special editions of games.
