After fifteen or so years of using a PC, I
switched to a Mac. A year later, I thought I should write down what I faced and the journey about my switch from Windows to Apple Mac OS X.
An Apple a day, keeps the Gates away.

Creating a Bootable Install Disc for Mac OS X Lion
These instructions are born from the 10.7 developer preview but should remain identical come time for the July public release:
Download Mac OS X Lion from the Mac App Store as usual
From the Mac OS X Finder, locate the Mac OS X Installation file that was downloaded, right-click, and "Show Package Contents"
Find and open the "SharedSupport" folder and locate a disc image file called "InstallESD.dmg"
Copy "InstallESD.dmg" to your Mac OS X Desktop, this is the Lion disk image and what you're going to create the bootable DVD from
Now launch Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/), pop in a blank DVD, select the "InstallESD.DMG" file, and click on "Burn"
