    Just a little question about bootcamp and Lion.

    I recently switched from Windows and used Bootcamp Assistant to create a BootCamp Partition. With Bootcamp Assistant I'm able to "roll back" the Partition and reintegrate it (delete and merge with OSX Partition). Is this still possible after an upgrade to Lion?


    Btw what do you think will happen to the dedicated keys: F3 Spaces, F4 Dasboard? Will F3 turn into Mission Control or what?

    Bootcamp will most definitely be reworked for Lion. I would recommend preparing your machine for a complete reinstall if you can get your copy next week. I'm not familiar with manipulating your bootcamp partition in SL, but rollbacks shouldn't be removed in Lion. Although the developer version of Lion does not contain any of the enhancements Apple will unveil June 6th. It only contains what Apple thinks developers need to get their Apps working. So I believe our knowledge of bootcamp for Lion is limited. For example Apple could have bootcamp running in parallel if you wanted to...

    Offtopic- I think Apple will add many features, but I think they have worked hard on performance too.


    I do think F3 will turn into mission control.

    What do you mean? F3 is Mission Control.

    F3 activates Mission Control on my DP3 already.

    And F4 activates what?

    Anyone who tried Lion also uses Bootcamp? Any Problems?

    F4 is Dashboard.
