Astazi Apple a anuntat ca noul Mac OS X Lion a fost descarcat de peste 1 milion de ori din Mac App Store de catre posesorii de Mac-uri. Cifra este foarte mare pentru prima zi de disponibilitate si evidentiaza interesul utilizatorilor fata de noul sistem de operare iar daca facem un mic, calcul aflam ca Apple ar fi castigat aproape 30 de milioane de dolari in doar o zi. Desigur ca din aceasta suma scadem persoanele care au cerut ca Mac OS X Lion sa li se ofere gratuit pentru ca au cumparat un Mac in ulltima luna asa ca Apple a ramas cu vreo 20 de milioane in incasari.
