    Ummm, 10.6.8 was a maintenance release. Lion is a full OS update. You expect it to be 500MB? It's almost 4GB.

    Well, I was at a campground, so I think it took around two to three days, mainly because I had to pause the download every now and again.

    Thread titled " Lion Is Slow " so I expected to read a thread about performance issue and instead find a complaint about download times which are what is to be expected for a download of its size.

    Oh well, yeah it took quite a while to download ..... but it IS a big download.

    It took me about 2-3 hours with 100mb connection, it was really slow.. usually I download about 1-1.5mb/s but with Lion it was only 300kb/s or something.
