    I deleted some files and folders from my MBP which are unnecessary
    Even after deleting those files, my available space doesn't increases in the "About my mac" window
    Can any one please tell me why?

    In that case, how big were the files you deleted (in total)?

    Actually I tested and noticed that soon as you put it in the trash can, your HDD size increase. Did you check it before putting it in the trash can?

    I noticed the same after upgrading to Lion. Particularly after deleting large files.

    Since you didn't say what type of files they were, I thought I would add that Photos stored in iPhoto have a separate trash can.:D

    I have no idea what you're doing on a forum for Mac users. But seriously, Mac OSX and Windows are built differently, with different purposes in mind. People who enjoy Mac OSX like the slickness and design and it's plethora of innovative features. Windows users like to be a bit more organized with folders everywhere and such. Power is usually a bigger concern for them. No operating system is better or worse than another...Except the worst of them, Linux.

    It's far too early to make any final judgements about Lion. Bugs & glitches are a perfectly normal part of any new OS. There's only so much debugging any Mfg can do till it's in the hands of the public. Then they work on what shows up. Thus far I think Apples doing a very good job with Lion. With any major upgrade patience is required while they get it sorted. It's not the end of the world if it's not perfect. Nothing is. Just wait & you will see Apple will get it debugged.
