    I sometimes prefer not to be an early adopter, and I still haven't gotten around to upgrading to Lion. I was wondering what features of previous versions of Mac OS X have been lost in Lion.

    I still use MobileMe heavily, and I've been told the Finder has no iDisk integration in Lion. Does that mean I have to use www.me.com/idisk for all of my iDisk uploading and downloading?

    Anyways, what other features have you noticed have been removed or watered down in Lion?

    iDisk is dead. It will be turned off in June. Move to Dropbox.

    I know this but that's not the focus of my thread. What else has been removed in Lion?

    I really don't understand folks who want everything about Lion magically divulged before they decide to use it. There are too many "subjective" opinions about it. Lion is great for some... sucks for others. The path from Leopard to Snow Leopard was pretty much a no-brainer as most of 10.6 stayed true to form.

    Lion is much different. Simply install it on an external drive and see for yourself.

    I agree with you about your first point. More than subjective opinions this thread should just explore what objectively has been removed. A little extra knowledge never hurt.

    I'm using Lion 10.7.1 and there is still an option in System Preferences to mount your iDisk on the desktop (and access the files even when you are not online) -- exactly as it worked in SL. I continue to use it...

    Maybe you should read some of the 713 threads about Lion.
