I'm an early adopter of new technology, and love any upgraded or improved hardware or software. So I was so excited about Lion and all the hype it was getting. Loved reading reviews like this one from yesterday, "The past two major computer operating system releases, Windows 7 and Snow Leopard, were incremental. Lion is very different. It's a big leap, and gives the Mac a much more modern look and feel for a world of tablets and smartphones. If you are willing to adjust, it's the best computer operating system out there." However, after installing it, I think it feels like Snow Leopard with a few cool features added. Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike Lion, and I'm not talking about reverting back to SL, but I want it to be a bigger upgrade than how I'm currently feeling. Everyone's excited about Launchpad and Mission control. To me, Launchpad seems no different than clicking the Applications icon in my task bar (except Launchpad shows all the Adobe Uninstall icons, and I can't delete them). And Mission Control merely shows you what you have opened at once. What's the big deal? I've read about the 250 other features, and some are nice, but this doesn't feel like the "very different" "big leap" that it's being hyped. I sound more negative than I feel. Not really bashing it, so don't get defensive. I really just want someone to help me understand the cool benefits I was hoping to see.
