Developers get their hands on Apple's OS X Lion 'gold master' build Apple has released the "gold master" build of their upcoming Mac OS X Lion operating system to developers, implying the OS is ready to ship and should be available to Mac fans within the next week or two.
"Gold Master" for Apple is what RTM is to Microsoft Windows builds.

Last month, the company showed off the OS, which will only cost $30 because it is available solely as a digital download from the Mac App Store.

Speculation has Apple releasing the OS officially on either July 6th or possibly July 14th.

Because the OS is a bit over 4GB, Apple notes that users with capped bandwidth can head to any Apple retail store and use the Wi-Fi there without any hassle.

Even desktop users? I can see some kerfuffle if someone takes in a Mac Pro...
