    It's "releases", not "unleashes". No wait... Ah, now I get it. It's one of your usual "wow!" article titles that backfire all the time and make everyone roll their eyes instead of actually going "wow!"

    Wow!

    Is there any official statement that OpenGL has been upgraded to version 3.2 in Lion?

    Btw in this regard Linux is "better" cause the closed source drivers support GL 4.1.

    It's impossible to not copy&paste titles that suggest absolute endorsement and/or Apple affiliation?

    I wonder if Canonical will take issue with them using the name "Launchpad"

    Let's privatize more random English words and sue those who use them, after all capitalism is about buying, selling and making a profit.

    Yeah, and 5 times as many hits where people managed to use a more appropriate phrase like "Apple releases".
    (Not that I really cared)

    So basicaly there's an OS upgrade that:
    -Costs money;
    -Is proprietary;
    -But offers nothing NT 6.x doesn't offer, except a stupid Disney interface;
    -Needs expensive Braun's 70's industrial design computers (dear Apple, it's 2011, kthnxbye);
    -???

    *YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN*

    Can you please focus on FLOSS? And can you also leave out (non-Linux), proprietary software (which also includes Windows), except for benchmarks? 'K thanks....
