    I just recently got my new macbook pro and I used the migration assistant to "migrate" all my files/apps from my Time Machine into the new laptop.

    I'm wondering whether I should do a clean install when Lion comes out and simply start from scratch - obviously I'd bring over my files and my paid applications.

    Just so that there is no crap laying around from my old macbook... any thoughts?

    hey man,

    been running Lion for a week now. Lion installs in place and performs an Archive and Install, replacing the computer's system and library folders. I've had no issue's so far
