By releasing Lion for only $29.99 on the Mac App Store, Apple said users are buying the new OS faster that any other previous OS release

Just one day after the release of Mac OS X Lion, Apple reported that one million users have bought and downloaded the brand new OS. 

Mac OS X Lion, which is Apple's eighth major release of Mac OS X, was released on July 20 and features 250 new Mac features. Some of these features include Multi-Touch gestures, which offer system-wide support for full screen apps; Launchpad, which contains all of your apps in one place, and Mission Control, which allows you to view everything running on your Mac. 

Apple launched the new OS on the Mac App Store, which was recently released in January of this year. Apple has said that the Mac App Store would eventually eliminate the need for boxed software, and announced this week that many boxed software products would move to the Mac App Store only. 

By releasing Lion for only $29.99 on the Mac App Store, Apple said users are buying the new OS faster that any other previous OS release. The modest price, quick availability via download, and fixes/new features that this release offers has appealed to users while Apple wins in respect to adoption of the Mac App Store over boxed software, and of course, greater sales. 

"Lion is off to a great start, user reviews and industry reaction have been fantastic," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "Lion is a huge step forward, it's not only packed with innovative features but it's incredibly easy for users to update their Macs to the best OS we've ever made."
