    All you haters who are still on SL should switch. Oh wait that doesn't even matter, you are still using an Apple product anyways. :cool:

    Mission control is awesome.

    Aye! The more I use it and other features of Lion the more I like Lion.

    Definitely on it's way to becoming a truly great O/S!

    I agree. At first, I didn't really get why they did most of what they did, but now as I use it all more and I am really getting used to it all, I like it. I still don't much use Launchpad though, but I have a shortcut to my Applications folder on my dock, which is pretty much the same. I might try to get used to Launchpad sometime though.

    I spent about an hour two days ago organizing my apps in Launchpad. As I organized things I was thinking, "here's a feature I'll rarely use." As it turns out I'm using it quite a lot.

    It's still hard not to use spotlight searches, but for one thing with Launchpad I have less icons docked to my dock.

    Nice to see some non-hating threads about Lion. :apple:

    I love it. It took some time to get used to Mission Control replacing Spaces and Expose, but now I love it - particularly because of its synchronization (is that the right word?) with full screen apps. I also love how folders resize in the finder window when being dragged. So Apple

    Same here,

    Unlike other members who have had problems with their Lion, ive not yet come across any.

    I never used spaces in SnowLeopard, but with Lion it feels like it is a really handy feature. (mission control).

    After the Spotlight indexing, my machine has been very very smooth and reboots almost the same time as SL.

    Greeting to all,

    I'm a new macbook pro user for just a few days. Before upgraded to Lion I have already adapt to SL feature but now running on Lion it is so much fun to learn again. Love the feature, gesture and all the additional features.

    Apple has really impress me all over again. :)

    No it is NOT fantastic! Probably is going to be in the next updates... 10.7.2 maybe...

    It is full of bugs! From the basic Apps to the core of the operating system! Sometimes I fell that the current version of Lion it is not even a perfect fit for gold master

    For a A revision product you expect perfection? :rolleyes:

    Lion is a huge success, and I await it's eventual improvements.

    I have to admit, its definitely growing on me. I really like Mission Control more than I thought I would.

    I'm really liking it overall. I swear my iMac is faster with it than SL. I haven't come across any major bugs at all, just some small annoyances here and there. I never used Expose or even Spaces before, but now I'm using Mission Control and the two-finger swipe between apps thing all the time.

    1. Lion locks up randomly ( i had to restart my Mac twice already with Lion due to lock ups / freezes )
    2. Lion has much longer boot / shutdown time
    3. Higher system load / more memory hogging / worse battery life
    4. Sleep function doesn't work 100%, it fails sometimes.

    Lion is not fantastic yet until they fix these issues at least. So far, Snow Leopard > Lion.

    Same here. I never used those features until lion. My magic mouse has also been collecting dust until this upgrade. Now I actually like it.

    I'm loving it as well. I've been mostly using it on my black MB but I got a chance to check out some of the gestures on my 15" MBP earlier. I like the way back and forwards works in Safari. I didn't use many of the gestures in SL all that much simply because I didn't use of the the things they were setup to do.

    I'm ordering two Magic TrackPads today and I will set one up on each laptop and give it a go. Can't wait for that. :)

    I've been using Apple computers exclusively since the Mac Plus. I have a lot of user habits that are deeply ingrained. While Lion represents a new direction and a major departure from the way the Mac OS has worked, so far I'm happy with it. Some of the new features of Lion were a bit confusing at first, but after a few days and a few trips to System Preferences, Lion is making total sense to me.

    Yeah, although I don't use most new features, I thought it was a worthy upgrade.

    Reassurance thread. You see that a lot when a bad product is released.

    Lion works great for me!,,

    I had to reinstall one time(Because I did not know what I was doing).with a few tweaks like removing power pc apps that won't work w/ Lion, and I had about 5-6. Everything is fast as it used to be. I have a macro work station with 320g hd.and 2 extra 1teribyte internal hds in bays 2&3. 10 GIGS OF RAM.
    it's fun bumping around in LION SEEING WHAT IT CAN DO.
