    Apple OSX Lion to be released today?

    According to The Register it is: Apple to release Mac OS X Lion on Wednesday ? The Register

    As the US is just getting into work ATM and the west coast where Apple HQ is located won't be up and about for sometime yet we proberbly won't find out for another few hours at least, although there is nothing on Apples web site bar a notice announcing a launch date sometime in July.

    Not sure if I will move over to it yet, planning a fresh install and its an apple release so lots will probably be broken like the last major release sadly.

    The rumours say 8.30 a.m. Eastern Time, so it should have been released by now.

    They probably installed the GM version which was released to developers on 1st July (or the pirated version of that).

    I've been operating a Lion GM build for a bit now and it is working well ... but it makes you realise how much better it would be to have a touch screen to work with.

    I was sat last night trying to do some stuff on different machines and went to swipe the screen on my MBP running Lion ... and wondered why it wasn't responding!

    No I cant imagine trying to click the MEGA thin bars in OSX with a touch screen, the desktop blurb maybe but thats all that touch friendly on OSX. People slate windows with touch and its far easier then osx thin bar apps...

    Has anyone played with the server version of it yet? If I upgrade my server to lion server (via app store) will it still manage snow leopard clients or to improve on the service, have to upgrade them too?

    Hoping for improved reliability for network home directories (so imovie 11 works properly...)

    Similar question. If I were to update my personal Macbook to 10.7 would I still be able to install server admin tools so I can manage our 10.6.8 server and clients? The latest version of Server Admin Tools states it's for Lion Server only and a quick Google search got me nowhere.
