Rumor: Lion near to going live

lion to go live at wwdc?

Trusted sources tell TUAW that OS X 10.7 Lion has gone live for internal Apple testing as recently as last week. An internal testing release generally indicates that Lion is near to a real world debut.

This suggests the new OS might possibly ship as early as WWDC with an "available today" mention at the keynote -- or it might not (keeping in mind that Apple has previously cited "Summer 2011" as the launch window for Lion, which doesn't begin until June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere). But Lion is looking to be one step closer to availability for Apple customers.
