    What's everyone's opinion on natural scrolling?

    I couldn't use it at first but after while it felt....well...natural.

    I now instinctively push up to scroll down (even when at work using Windows) which means Apple have done a decent job or I'm terribly Pavlovian in some way.

    Love it i havent had any issues with it or scrolled in the wrong direction since i got Lion it just feels right to me.

    Its the kinda thing i wouldn't of thought of changing but it does feel a lot better than the old way.

    Nothing natural about it to me. It works on a horizontal surface like an iPhone or iPad but applying this to the trackpad on a mac just seems all wrong. I can't wrap my head around it.

    Too old... too set in my ways.

    Took a couple days to retrain the brain but now seems very natural (even on my MBP). Push up and pull down :D

    It took a little while, but now I can't even remember the "un-natural" scrolling.

    If OS X was the only OS I used, I'd probably get used to it and maybe begin to like it, but no other OS has it, so to avoid confusion, I don't bother with it.

    If I didn't use a PC in conjunction to my Mac, I'd probably be more inclined to try out the natural scrolling. Unfortunately it confused the hell out of me especially when switching between computers so ended up going the...well, un-naturatl way :)

    It's funny, because I explained my negative thoughts towards it to a buddy of mine, and he's says, "Wow, that's just how it is in OSX; that's awesome!" So I say, "Hmm.. it is, isn't it. Anyways, I don't like it. It should be burned in a car fire." As a poster above me said, "I'm too set in my ways."

    I've been using PCs for the past 20+ years (I'm 27) and I it's too hard to adjust for my MBA. On an iPhone, no prob. It was natural, it felt great. But I can't do it. It won't make me.
