Jesus Diaz, Gizmodo:
It breaks my heart to say this, but Mac OSX Lion’s interface feels like a failure. Its stated mission was to simplify the operating system, to unify it with the clean experience of iOS. That didn’t happen. If it weren’t for the fast, rock-solid Unix, graphics and networking cores, Lion would be Apple’s very own Vista.
I didn’t install the Golden Master and will wait for the actual release of Lion next week (July 14th) but I can share some of his thoughts.
