    Lion.
    I was going to create a Snow Leopard partition, but 10.7.1 resolved enough of my issues to prevent me from doing that.

    It has treated me well and don't plan on going back unless something REALLY screws up. :)

    I bought a new 13" MBA to try Lion since initially I saw nothing that would benefit me.

    My main Macs are all running so fast (all with loads of ram & SSD's) and stable on 10.6.5 I didnt want to use them as testers.

    My favorite 15" mid 2010 MBP runs OS X, Windows 7 & Linux. It's a very nice machine. I'm 100% satisfied and not about to change it.

    Nor would I even think of installing Lion on my 2010 Mac Pro. That ones got two 512GB SSD's running OS X, Windows 7, Linux & Unix. 10.6.5 is serving me very well without the consumer level Mac App Store mucking things up.

    I forgot to do a checkbox thing so that you could select more than one option. ...And there is no way to edit polls on MacRumors once voting has begun.

    I'm staying with Snow Leopard until the following are fixed.

    #1 The downgrading of Spaces and Expose. I find Mission Control to be less powerful.
    #2 Lion's Full-Screen mode makes multiple monitors nearly useless. Snow Leopard's Full-Screen mode is better.
    #3 The loss of the "Save As..." option.
    #4 The loss of "Do you want to Save?"

    That is unless I find even more reasons to stay with SL.

    Why do you still need Windows 98?

    I wouldn't say "need". Question was "which OS(s) are you running?". It's more "because i can". :D

    OS/2 Warp and Windows for Workgroups are next. Just waiting on a usb floppy disk drive...

    Does running all of these make your MacBook Air slower?

    Just having them installed, no. i imagine if i try launching two or three at the same time, my MBA might choke. So far I can run Lion native and any one of those, and both are very responsive and snappy.

    When installing Windows 7, i installed it using Bootcamp first, and then i used Parallels to create a virtual machine out of the bootcamp partition. i did this to have the option of booting natively into Windows for the best possible performance, and i still get to run it as a vm inside of Lion. Best of both worlds. Head on over to the Windows on the Mac forum right here on Macrumors. A lot of very smart people running Windows on their Macs that may be able to help you if you need it. Good luck! :D

    Wow, the take-up of Lion has been huge. Probably because of how easy Lion is to obtain and how cheap it is.

    I use computers running 10.7, 10.6, Windows 7 & Windows XP.

    It's also because we have got a large number of Mac enthusiasts posting on these forums. The take-up is not yet quite that high in the real world.

    Actually when you take into account that this is a part of the forum devoted to Lion, you would expect a high percentage to be using Lion.

    I would say that the fact that about 20% aren't using Lion but are still interested in Lion to read this part of the forum is a statement about the problems with Lion both the bugs and the philosophical changes.

    ----------

    I am definitely glad I bought my 2011 MBP before Lion came out. It's still happily running Snow Leopard.
