Lion has only been on the Mac App Store for a few hours, but already this and other websites are being flooded with posts from people who are experiencing an array of issues with Lion. And its not just typical installation queries or learning the quirks of a new system. These are issues with the highlight features of the OS, such as Mission Control. In October 2010, at the "Back to the mac" event, Apple publicly unveiled Lion with it's headline features. There has been several developers releases through 2011, climaxing in a GM seed a couple of weeks ago. What has gone wrong in the year since, that there are still major bugs in Lion. Apple has built a reputation on the cliche of "it just works", but clearly in this case "it just doesn't!" Of course 10.7.1, 10.7.2, etc will come, and the fixes will be made, but that drags it in the direction of a certain Redmond OS beginning with V. It started off limping and eventually after many months of patches and fixes became an ok OS. Apple have missed an opportunity here to put more clearwater between themselves and Microsoft, but time is now going to be wasted fixing Lion. In those precious months, Windows 8 will start to show itself and gather interest. Another issue is that iOS 5 and iCloud are scheduled for the fall, but will Lion be ready to seamlessly fuse with them, or will those releases expose more holes in the fence. What are your thoughts on Lion as an issue for Apple. Will it cause damage?
