Apple To Distribute OS X Lion via the Mac App Store 517

Posted by CmdrTaco
from the but-i-miss-dvds dept.
An anonymous reader writes "Apple this Summer is expected to release Mac OS X Lion. As opposed to other OS X releases, however, Lion will also be available for purchase via the Mac App Store, further solidifying Apple's efforts to make the Mac App Store an integral part of the Mac user experience." A lot of questions surrounding this related to the ability to make bootable disks. And also, why don't they just use apt-get? I gotta admit: it makes me nervous getting my OS from an App Store — which is strange considering how many kernels I've downloaded, built and booted over the years.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.

Working...
