My comparison of Lion to Snow Leopard.

My viewpoint is the Lion Server installation, comparing it to non-server Snow Leopard. The non-server Lion installation may be different.

How to shoot your screen from within Mac OS X, or how to make sharp screenshots. (http://guides.macrumors.com/Taking_Screenshots_in_Mac_OS_X)

I like what your doing but for God's sake man learn to take a screenshot WITHOUT actually using a camera, it will save you tons of time and will look better. Use the Grab application.

Grab works...or even just command-shift-3 (or 4 if you want to select the area) does the job. Very easy to remember. And, no need to worry about your camera's battery dying :)

I beg your pardon, but isn't comand+shift+3?...

CMD+SHIFT+3 makes a screenshot of the entire visible screen, the OP has shot partial photos, therefore CMD+SHIFT+4 is more appropriate.

Someone rename this thread to "How to take screenshots" :D
Anyway, the screen photos still provide all the info we need, so thanks!

What is the 411 on the "internet accounts" setup--what all can you do if you add your google/gmail account?

It adds the account to mail, ical and iChat (if applicable). Something interesting...once i opened up "Internet Accounts", it asked to allow to automatically enter my MobileMe and Aim accounts. No setup was necessary. Very nice feature on Apple's part.

That's cool--I wonder if the mail on lion will have better integration with gmail--currently, it kind of messes the account organization up.

These threads are starting to get a little unnecessary. Everything posted in this thread has already been covered in the now dozens of other Lion threads. There's actually little we don't know about this build now.

absolutely nothing positive about this thread at all, the guy tries to be enthusiastic and help us out with identifying differences here and all you guys can do is bash him for doing something that little bit different..

nice..

i wasnt aware of the new voices in Lion, very cool addition.

thank you OP for posting your findings.

Honestly, i thought the MacRumours community was a good one! Obviously I was wrong!

Hardly any of you have had anything nice to say, and have instead put all your efforts into making this person look and feel like an idiot!

I'm very grateful for his/her contribution to the site, as I'm very excited about Lion. Thank you so much, please ignore these IDIOTS.

When there are many threads and articles already discussing the new features and changes coming in Lion, one thread (which is already sticked and has every single change in this thread already documented) will do. We don't need 50 new threads talking about the same thing. It just clutters up the board.

Perhaps the thread starter could have done searched this forum first. (Which, to my knowledge, is a fairly common rule among most message boards.)

I love how half of this thread is telling the OP how to take screenshots. :D

Thanks op, I saw some new things, and I have Lion.

That doesn't mean you have to reprimand the OP and constantly badger him about his absence of intelligence in the field of screenshot-taking.

Just thank him for posting it, and politely remind him of the rules.

He went out of his way to share information and discussion, and all he gets back is angry forumers spamming his thread.

I actually never commented once on his literal screen shots.

And yes, it was kind enough for him to make this thread, but it hasn't really uncovered anything new. It seems it would simply be better at this point to contribute any screenshots, redundant or not, to the stickied thread. (After all, it's stickied for a reason.)

Or Command + Shift + 4, then spacebar. :)

Thanks for the post OP. Finally got Lion installed last night on a 150GB partition on the iMac. Going to start putting it through its paces today.

Yes you are correct... but also after you press command-shift-4 you can press the space bar afterwards and than you can select a specific window, your dock, menubar, or desktop.
