Lion Installer

    No installation discs anymore, as John Siracusa puts it:

    Apple is so done with stamping bits onto plastic discs, putting the discs into cardboard boxes, putting those boxes onto trucks, planes, and boats, and shipping them all over the world to retail stores or to mail-order resellers who will eventually put those same boxes onto a different set of trucks, trains, and planes for final delivery to customers, who will then remove the disc, throw away the cardboard, and instruct their computers to extract the bits. No, from here on out, it's digital distribution all the way.

      I was pissed two years ago when my mom threw away my Apple 2c boxes. Not as pissed when my grandmother threw away my dads perfect mint baseball cards sets from the 50's and 60's, but pissed, my how our generations change.
