My big issue is also lack of support for the older OS. How is it that 10.6.8 users cannot have access to the newest version of Safari. How about iCloud support, really Apple? It goes far beyond just an updated OS that Apple is doing this with. It's absurd really and disappointing on the other end.

I agree with you entirely Lucky. I feel that this trend is a direct strng arm of us the consumers. We have the power to dictate how Apple markets their products and I don't think we're making full use of our given right as consumers. Apple are our employees and yet it looks like the other way around. Only strong decisive collaborative action as consumers will yield the results we are entitled to as consumers.

Some of us are even stuck in SL with MP1.1, but no worries Apple has started to sell SL again. Just wondering if they start to sell Lion again, sometime in 2014, perhaps?

Will this same procedure work on a Core 2 Duo 2,1 Macbook Pro do you think?

You CAN run it on a Mac Pro 2,1 and earlier.

It took me a little time but really it is quite simple once you know what you are doing. You can PM me if you need any help.

Here is how you do it on a Mac Pro
