    Is it me... when I scroll with two fingers, on Snow Leopard, down was down, now Lion is up is down. Or is it just me? Cause I'm not feeling it. Is there a way to change it?

    It's new to Lion. It mimicks the iOS scrolling. You can change it in System Preferences under Trackpad.

    Under the Scroll & Zoom tab, uncheck Scroll direction: natural.

    Thanks. I'm an idiot for not noticing that under the system preference. It's so annoying.

    Haha, that's the point. I'm still using a windows desktop so I don't want to change it.
    - Edit - LOL. I just imagine that my track pad was an iPhone and it got easier for some reason.
    But the problem is that I'm using a windows mouse so the scroll mouse thingy on the mouse scrolls reverse. wth.

    It's probably cool for new Mac owners, but anyone who is familiar with scrolling on Snow Leopard may find it tricky. I'm still waiting for Lion to download, but I'll probably keep the Snow Leopard style scrolling. Nice that we have a choice for both options, though.

    Still downloading Lion, but I definitely plan to switch the scrolling back to the conventional way. The inverted scrolling simply isn't intuitive when you're not actually touching the screen.

    If you have not used it yet, you might be surprised. I really prefer the new scrolling method, it feels great.

    I have now used it and I still don't like it. Ironically, I play FPS games inverted, but I just can't get used to scrolling content this way. *settings changed*

    Help

    Hmm, i have a 2007-08 MBP, and that option is not there in trackpad, just as it was before. Do you have any suggestions?
