    If you PM me what programs don't work, I'll add it to the list. If it is not on the list, then it works or I haven't gotten word that it doesn't.

    Glad to see that Facebook Notifications works! Since they stopped developing on it.

    That's odd. Skype is having no problems for me.

    Hotspot Shield is so unfortunate and annoying, i basically need it on every streaming site and Skype is working for me, just not connecting ^^

    Facetime

    I couldn't get FaceTime working properly.

    Well, as far as MY end is concerned in Lion, it worked fine. But the person I was trying to talk to only heard feedback on their end. The video was fine, though

    That's what I meant. It is stuck on "signing in."

    Netflix streaming hasn't worked on any of the preview versions so far on either Firefox or Safari (DRM error message), and it's [probably, likely] to do with Microsoft Silverlight. I don't know for sure what else uses Silverlight, but their main site wasn't working 100% for me either.

    Just got Lion installed on my MBA 11" and all seems to be good so far. It took about 5 times before Disk Utility in 10.6.7 would split my existing partition. But it finally worked and all is working.

    A quick question after seeing this list...

    So does iPhoto 9.1.1 truly not work? I have 9.1 installed at this moment and it wants to update to 9.1.1.

    Should I say no right now. I actually really kind of want iPhoto to work for the next few days.

    Thanks in advance.

    To have skype work on Lion open advanced preferences and disable hotspot detection. Relaunch.

    I would find that re-assuring if I hadn't tried all I can think of in getting it to work in Lion. Do you have your Lion setup on a second partition (like I do), or in some other way?
    I've tried all variations of having Silverlight installed on Lion instead of trying to carry it through from my Snow Leopard partition; uninstalling Silverlight on Snow Leopard; testing on Firefox and Safari… I googled the "DRM" error code and those solutions didn't work.
    Honestly, it would be a bigger deal if it didn't work on my Snow Leopard partition anymore either, but it does. I'm just surprised to hear that it works for someone without problems.

    So I guess it isn't Silverlight's fault after all. ;)

    Yes, I do have Lion installed on a separate partition. I don't have any suggestions to get silverlight working though. :confused:

    Skype has been working flawlessly.

    Best, delete the app and other resource files (plist+application support if any) and try again.

    Also, skype does that sometimes on SL as well; opens up but does not connect. Just delete it properly and reinstall. :)

    If anyone's looking for skype2.8, let me know and I'll send you a link for the same.

    Regards

    Dropbox runs on DP2 update 2, perfectly. Never tried on previous versions.

    EDIT: Without any hacks.

    Anything that's dependent on MacFUSE (ExpanDrive, Transmit when connected to servers using NTFS) doesn't work because of the 64-bit kernel.
