    has anyone tried it out?

    if so, how is it? does it run faster or slower? load time?

    My initial impression is that it offers at least a comparable performance to Snow Leopard. Works great on a 2010 MBA.

    It's working fine for me. Installed this morning and haven't had any problems. It seems to make MBA run slightly faster. I do know startup is faster by a few seconds. The install is very easy. Just make sure you run the Snow Leopard update to make sure you have the latest version before you download Lion.

    Been using it for a couple weeks and it feels the same as Snow Leopard other than a few UI changes, I do believe it has a marginally larger memory footprint. Disk encryption is substantially improved.

    i was gonna wait a few weeks before getting it, since i've seen many ppl reporting lags in mission control...

    but seems like its a safe bet to install it now
