This is a follow up post to my 1 day review of Mac OS X Lion. After using it for a couple more days it still is a very positive experience. I did find an interesting feature that I believe calls for another blog entry.
When you shut down your machine OS X Lion asks you if you’d like to re-open all the windows. That is very handy because often I am using the same several apps all the time Chrome, Mail, iCal, Word and maybe an IDE.
Yesterday I was using terminal windows for my development and wanted to reboot my machine. To my surprise when I rebooted the machine my Terminal windows opened and I had the history of my shell commands and outputs still in the buffer.
Even though I don’t reboot my mac often it was useful to regain the context of what I was doing. This is another example of small but useful improvement done in the latest version of OS X.
