    Hello everybody.

    Quick question here - when I download and install Mac OS X Lion, will everything from Snow Leopard stay as it was, or will I have to reinstall all my previous applications?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Let me make sure ... Let's say I have a bunch of stuff in my home folder, lotta other folders, a bunch of apps installed - I then install OS X Lion, everything will be there?

    I am making sure because I just switched from a PC so when you wanted to reinstall OS you had to format the partition, which meant losing everything.

    You don't have to format. Everything will be the same.
