    In lieu of just rushing to download the new OS and update, I would like to perform a fresh install. I've searched, to no avail on how exactly to do this, so can somebody link me to a guide or give me instructions so I can do this while maintaining things like my iTunes Library and documents folder and applications?

    Use a time machine backup and restore your music folder from the latest time machine backup after Lion is installed.

    Could I just restore from a Time Machine backup, or would this effectively be the same as installing over my current copy of Snow Leopard?
