Mac OS X Lion: 'Classic' Mail View Available, Video of Finder


We've compiled a couple of more notes of interest on the Apple's upcoming Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

- Classic Mail: While Apple is pushing the new iPad-inspired Mac OS X Lion Mail application, we've learned that Apple also offers a "Classic Layout" checkbox in the Mail settings which reverts the interface back to the familiar Mail interface.

- Finder: AppleInsider posts this video which shows Lion in action (embedded above). It demonstrates new Finder features including:

- Overlay Scrollbars
- Window Resizing from any edge/corner
- Enhanced Finder Source list
- Enhanced Quick View
- Zoom button behavior

Apple launched the developer preview of Mac OS X Lion on Thursday. The public release is expected this summer. We've opened a Mac OS X Lion forum for questions and discussion about Apple's new operating system.

this is a wonderful example of how extremely manipulative apple is. notice that on windows it has always been possible to resize windows on every corner? an notice, that most windows on windows can be fullsize?

well, i still remember very clearly how bad this is, it confuses the user... no one needs fullscreen... windows is bad, because the apple concept of only resizing on the bottom right corner is more logical bla bla bla.

and what is the new INNOVATION now???

I dislike hidden scrollbars very, very much.

I kinda like the one corner resizing. It seems better and less easy to accidentally resize a window. Anyone with me on that one? Plus you don't get those ugly double arrowed cursors.

although, maybe it is just because I am used to it.:apple:
I'm with you.

In the beginning it looked like there were only 12 apps in that folder... How are you supposed to know if there is more than what can fit in the window if the scroll bar disappears??? Stupid move if you ask me. This isn't a phone OS where screen realestate is lacking.
