Does Adobe CS5 work finally without issues? I want to upgrade to Lion!
Nope, they're still XL.
Which is a load of crap - Google is your friend, put 'install office 2008 without rosetta' into Google and the first link has the answer:
Anyone know how to access the beta as I deleted my invitation email from SJ by mistake - honest!
2 updates in less then 2 months since release, and Apple still doesn't want to admit that Lion was a bit of a disaster. Definitely not in the Vista category, but until I see Apple own up to the fact they broke more then they improved in Lion, I won't be installing my copy of Lion or its patches just yet.
All they have to do is issue an update that says it improves compatibility and support and I am sold, but as long as they keep rolling out "secret" updates with no real mention of what they fixed, I don't trust them.
And to all those that claim there is nothing wrong with Lion, I am happy that you can browse the web and play Angry Birds on your Mac, but most people I know that use it for more then that have stayed away from OS X Lion.
Its a shame they have to be so secretive and provide no comment on this. I don't hate Apple, I am a long time PC enthusiast that has seen the light, but I mean I expect more from Apple then to roll out a beta OS and then patch functionality long after the release. When 90% of what I do with OS X is broken after I updated to Lion and it claims to be the worlds most advanced OS, come on! I am sure it will claim that title eventually, but after how many patches? 6 - 7? And then what, another shoddy rollout of 10.8.
Your MacRumors status says it all...
Oh Paleeeeaseee. Facts please...
Actually.... this is what came with the update to 10.7.1....

We all eagerly wait in anticipation of your complaints about it in the coming months.
I clean installed Office 2008 after a clean install of Lion. No problems at all. And yes, I used the installer on the Office 2008 disc, not the Terminal method.
Rubbish. Absolute rubbish.
Lion has been just as stable as SL has been for me.
Lightroom, InDesign, VMWare Fusion, Photoshop, Backup software, Time machine, Mail, Safari etc all working aboslutely perfectly.
The new 'features' such as Mission Control etc are debatable as an improvement but as a stable operating system Vista it is not.
It's on both my sig machines and running perfectly.
It was running like crap on our machines as well. Til it got so bad I bit the bullet, invested a day, redownloaded the installer, burned it to disc, formatted all systems, and gave em proper clean installs from the ground up. Made a huge difference. Now I love Lion.
This is a joke with 10.7.1
Improve the reliability of Wi-Fi connections
The wifi has gotten worse since 10.7.1 with zero connectivity on my iMac at various times without warning. turning wifi on and off helps only once or twice and restarting working once or twice neither work all the time.
When using 10.7 I didn't see these issues
If anyone has any suggestions please feel free as I am willing to try ideas to see if anything works.
You are not very schooled in Macs or Wi-Fi!
1. In your video you COULD have used something like iShowU to record to the screen instead of holding a shaky camcorder to the screen.
2. Most Wi-Fi problems can be fixed! a) Replace your old Wi-Fi cheap router. b) Reset Your PRAM to see if that helps. c) Turn off Airport, go to folder /Library/Preferences/ and find the files for com.apple.airport.preferences.plist & NetworkInterfaces.plist. Then reboot to rebuild those files.
Then there must be a bunch of us (see Apple forums, Google for Lion, etc) that received a "broken" copy of the OS. U r so fortunate!
Or probably we live in parallels world... and u r so fortunate to be living in the one where Apple doesn't make mistakes.
Now... can I get Facetime back? It has not work for me since the upgrade.
Use DropBox or other
Gosh, and what's the point of iCLoud then!?? It's better to use DropBox, it's more compatible, cheaper and lot faster!
Have you guys tried the new Front Row in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, it's awesome!!!!!
So whats the difference between what I'm doing and what your doing then?
Assuming our hardware is the same the only difference is the user
Besides I was more criticising you comparing it to Vista.
Vista was awful and I have proportionally spent more time fixing Vista PCs than any other. I know more about Vista than I do W7 and I use W7 myself!
No know faults, dam hope they fixed the WiFi issue that I have been having and so many others on Apple own forum.
