First of all let me say that I love the hardware, my issue is with OSX Lion, just working is a myth as far as I am concerned. Having come from many years of building pc's and using Windows, I have a computing consulting business and have a lot of experience with operating systems and troubleshooting pc's. I am the rare guy that never had any negative issues with Windows Vista. I also need to use Windows Visual Web Developer Express and Windows Matrix to design and maintain BlogEngine.net websites, there is nothing remotely close on the Mac side for this. There are so many things I like about my iMac, one of them is the Mail program, preview and more. I also like the advice and knowledge offered here. Since I needed to run Windows I contemplated installing Bootcamp and Vista but soon learned that Lion would not let me, I needed Windows 7. I purchased VMFusion at a discount an installed it and my copy of Windows Vista and the programs I needed. I have also had to reinstall Lion 3 times to get it working without issues, 2 of them without formatting and the last time I just formatted and started over, of course this meant a cople more hours installing VMFusion and Windows again, the updates take a lot of time. So here I am again, the iMac would not wake up this morning and I had to shut down with the power switch and restart, this screwed up Windows and now I have to reinstall VMFusion, Windows and all the programs again. Lion has been a nightmare for me, all the issues with it not waking up, not shutting down and freezing up are about ready to induce me to maybe get rid of my iMac. So now I am thinking of either buying a Windows 7 Notebook to run my Windows programs and not installing it on the iMac, or buying a copy of it and running Bootcamp, this would keep the operating systems totally separate, I do enjoy switching back and for the with VMFusion but I now know that this will entail more issues in the future. Any advice out there for me?
