Vista has a larger install base on its own than all versions of OS X. Not very surprising.
... and thus more than lion. What's your point? We should think it's fine to not have access to our contacts and calendars because we prefer to use a fantastic, functional OS instead of a buggy, slow, ugly kludge of a beta? (lion) I get that lion works better on 2011-2012 machines, but guess what- on my 2009 MBP, I can run almost twice as many things without a hiccup and have an extra HOUR of battery life (not to mention pro features like working drag-and-drop and exposé). Apple screwing everyone who doesn't like the forced upgrade to Lion is a really terrible move, and has no real benefit.

Also, remember that these syncing services worked before in the form of mobile me, and could still work fine in SL. There is no technical reason for Apple stiffing us.

For those that can't see it in Software update, it's because 3.3 requires 10.7.4 in order to install. Apple is really starting for coerce SL users to upgrading. =/

Yet another slap in the face from apple. Some joker with Vista can use iCloud. Snow Leopard? Not so much.

Awesome news on AVCHD support in iPhoto! My NEX-5N records AVCHD and was tired of having to import into iMovie so this is the best news for me today :)

It SEEMS that the iPhoto and iTunes icons are now retina friendly. Or a little sharper.
