    I recieved my new MacBook Pro about 4 days ago. I love the new software
    OS Lion. The brand new software is amazing. It is so much better than my older MacBook Pro software. I just wanted to see what everyone thinks about it!! :apple: I like the LaunchPad and Mission Control. They make the laptop very easy to use. I love OX LionPost some pictures of what you like about OS Lion. :apple:

    I enjoy the fact that the entire computer doesn't freeze if one application freezes. I don't know how deep Apple went while making changes to the OS, but it seems as though they have done something fundamentally different with the way Mac OS handles CPU calls. Memory management is better, and the interface is just nice. I just wish they would bring back Exposé, but Mission Control works well. I don't like the way apps are kept "open" when shutting down or logging off, but it's not difficult to uncheck the box in the shut down window.

    I like the improved security, three finger drag, full-screen mode, and will probably use the hard drive encryption soon.

    I dislike the slower startup time and continued lack of TRIM support for non-Apple SSDs.

    But then again if you create more threads out of a similar topic it becomes redundant, isn't it? It is like your mother telling you the same thing over and over again in the morning. Are you not tired of it?

    I especially enjoy his enthusiasm to anybody's thread concerning batteries or power adapters.

    Who said anything about using one thread? The OP asked how people like Lion. I posted relevant links that answer the question, as forum rules suggest. If it bothers you, add me to your ignore list. :rolleyes:

    You never stated your opinion to the OP's question! How do YOU like Lion?

    I gave the OP many more opinions than just one. My personal opinion is irrelevant.

    i didn't think i would. i have been using SL and still do with my mac mini and will continue to do so until i finish a certain project because i'm using word 2004 that won't work with lion. but of course i have lion on my mbp using word 2011 which is compatible with word 2004 word.doc documents. but when i'm finished i will update my SL on the mini to lion and also update word 2004 to 2011. to make a looooong story short i really like lion but it has a relatively long learning curve because there are so many new attributes in it compared to snow leopard. when i have the time i will try to learn a lot of them. but i really like lion on my mbp at least so far.

    I don't care for it myself.

    I even bought a new 2011 MBA just to try it, without having to disturb my fast and fully optimized 2010 15" & 17" MBP, my Mac Pro, and others on my network.

    I'm sure many find it just fine, I'm not saying anything bad about it.

    But for me it just doesn't suit my preferences. I'm running 10.6.8 and could not be happier.

    I have it installed on an external drive, with my '07 iMac. It is fast, and I haven't had any of the problems, that others have posted. I do miss spaces, so for now I will keep SL on my iMac, and use Lion for my torrent HDD.

    I really didn't think I was going to like it. But when I purchased the MBA it came with Lion, and I was surprised by how much I actually did like it. I now have it installed on all of my computers. As mentioned in an above post, I do miss Spaces, but overall I am liking it.

    I like it as well, just hate how everytime i arrange my folder in Kind of Size it would put everything in sections.

    Sucks on my Mac Book, but ok on everything else so far.

    Indifferent to it actually. I am basically trading three finger resume for that annoying shutdown window prompt.

    I upgraded from Snow Leopard on my iMac and MBP and haven't had any problems so far.

    I had a 2010 15" MacBook Pro, and it was absolutely terrible.
    After taking it into the Genius Bar multiple times, it was replaced with the late 2011 unit I have now.
    Lion has been great.

    Personally though my favorite OS at launch was Leopard. Tiger, although it did have some issues, was my second favorite.

    Love it!!!

    I've been on the Mac for 14 years and for me this is the best version of Mac OS to date. I have to use my Macs for business use and Mission Control has been amazing for my productivity. I love the enhances to Image Capture, love the full screen feature and Spotlight is much nicer in Lion than in Snow Leopard.
    Played with someone's Snow Leopard Mac the other day and it really seems old and ancient and lacking in features compared to Lion.
    Is it perfect? No, and Snow Leopard certainly had it's issues. Am I satisfied with Lion? YES. Very much. :)

    Bring back the more efficient Expose/Spaces and I'm in.

    Lion has slipped to below 4 stars. :eek:

    Even scarier is FCPX is rated higher.

    You guys can neg me all you want but the poll here in this thread pretty much echoes the ratings of Lion in the app store. :)
