So been reading through the forums and a lot of people have some minor issues with dp3, the man ones being:

a lot of people struggling with safari not loading when you click 'back page' personally i dont have this.

cannot delete default apps from the launchpad

the scroll bar does not disappear in dp3, does with dp2 (do you prefer this?)

the view options for finder are buttons again rather than a scroll window that you ran over i.e. cover flow to folder view

is dp3 more stable in terms of ACTUAL stability? i dont really know so looking to find out what other think,

more importantly, has anyone found dp3 or dp2 for that matter, to be stable enough to use as their main OS? personally, i'm too nervous to do it although thinking about it after backing up using tm. any advice here?

1) I'm having that issue with Safari...but it's likely already been sorted internally at Apple

2) You cannot delete default apps from Launchpad, but I'm not sure whether that's a bug or not.

3) The scrollbars most certainly still disappear. They will not disappear if the app doesn't support it, however. For example, Google Chrome.

4) I'm not sure how the view options is a bug...it's been changed system wide.

5) You should NEVER use a developer preview as your main OS. No matter how stable everyone claims it to be, there are still bugs present.

My scrollbars didn't initially disappear, I went in to the appearance preference pane and it was set to "Based on input device", so I switched it to "only when scrolling". It probably doesn't hide automatically on non-multitouch trackpads.

I also have to reiterate to never use any preview OS as a main OS. In fact, I only gave Lion about a quarter of my hard drive space. I put all of my Xcode projects on an external hard drive, so development space on the Lion partition does't really matter.

I thought the default was for it to only appear when scrolling? Has that changed since the initial DP?

It chooses based on your current input device.
