    I've purchased OS X Lion from the app store, but it will not download. I just get a "spinning wheel" icon in the top left of the window. Perhaps Apple's servers are over capacity? Or is something else wrong? Left it for several hours and no dice. Have tried 20 or 30 times. Anybody else have this problem? I'm in Australia.

    Reboot Helps

    Reboot got download started. Have icon in dock now. Download either not running or incredibly slow. I'm assuming that Apple's servers are just plain old grinding under the load and that's all it is.

    App Store = Aaaaaargh!

    Network access here is flakey. Whenever the network drops out, the App Store application restarts the download! A nice "resume" system would have worked well. Have wasted gigs and gigs of download so far. Lovingly remembering install DVDs....

    can't access App Store

    I've been trying all day to access the App Store to purchase Lion but I never get to the Store because I always get a message, "App Store quit unexpectedly". I am running 10.6.8. Any suggestions?
