    After using Lion, seems to me like Apple fired all of their great programmers from Leopard/Snow Leopard and told their iOS team to make a operating system for Mac.

    With the amount of bugs it has, and simply idiotic decisions that they made, it does not seem like the same well-oiled machine that Snow Leopard was.

    Come off it. Are you actually having problems or just ranting for no reason? And, if you don't use Launchpad and disable reverse scrolling, it's not at all like iOS.

    What confuses me is their decision to "post-PC" some aspects of the OS. For example, when changing sound now it no longer shows how many "bars" of sound you have the icon and you can't do half bars. This is by no means a usability flaw but just confusing why one would depreciate functionality that wasn't really harming anything and may be a net benefit (or at least fun little quirk) for some people.

    There's enough threads discussing the love and/or hate of Lion.

    Please post your opinions/thoughts regarding Lion to one of those.
