One million Apple`s Lion download

Just within one day, 1one million copies has been downloaded for the new Apple OS X Lion. In addition to three other products, Apple released OS X Lion yesterday, an update to the Mac operating system that has be in the making since 2009. It seems that there were quite a few people waiting for the OS X release–apparently Lion was downloaded over 1 million times yesterday. That sets Mac OS X 10.7 as the fastest downloaded OS in Apple’s history.

Coincidentally, when Apple launched the Mac App Store back in January, it too received 1 million downloads in its first 24 hours. Lion was made available yesterday in the Mac App Store for $29.99, which was also a first for Apple since it used to offer a physical copy of the software available in its retail stores. However, customers had only one choice if they wanted Lion on the first day of its release, and that was the Mac App Store.

Apple is getting their torque while Microsoft is still looking for the suitable nut to tight the loose OS.
