Personally I like it, took a bit of getting used to but i found that switching back to normal was just awkward with the new swipe animations for going back and forth and switching between spaces.
What do you guys think?

I agree, i like the inverted scrolling, i'm using this since at least one month ago (Lion DP2).

The problem is when you using another computer with Windows or GNU/Linux. =P

Hate it. If all I ever used is macs I could potentially take the time to get to like it. However I primarily use windows machines and don't want one way of scrolling on one machine and another way on another machine.

They should leave the old setting as default.

Same here, i am loving it!

No they should not since the navigation within the lion is optimized for inverted scrolling, it really is more natural.

It's hard to adjust to it. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it this way or not, but it makes sense the way it works.

They should have just left the mouse wheel scrolling alone. The trackpad stuff I understand though.

I had to change it back. Love it on the iPad, but it is not intuitive at all on the trackpad or mighty mouse imo.

Just give it a bit more time and you will never go back.

I like the inverted scrolling. It took me like 5 minutes of working with it and now its so natural. It makes the gestures so much more intuitive.

With that said, I haven't tried it on a mouse with a scroll wheel yet. I can imagine that being awkward.

Took about 30 minutes to get used to. Trolling the forums and twitter helped to get my mind in to natural scrolling. Now I'm afraid to use the un-natural type of scrolling. :eek:

I changed it immediately as soon as I installed Lion. Can't stand it inverted.
I was confused at first but it is more intuitive (guess that's why it's called natural). I then changed it back to the old up is down way. I have since decided to try it the new way and changed it back. I'm still confused but determined to give it a couple of days and see if it becomes natural. If not LI'll just go back.

After 8 years of using a trackpad with the non-inverted scrolling, I don't plan on switching now.

Changed the setting immediately.

for me personally:

it makes sense for swipes (3 finger swipe left to go to a page on the right)

but not for scrolling (left and right scrolling are particularly counterintuitive)

The worst part is that I want it for Launchpad so swiping is inverted, but I want regular scrolling for browser. But they link it so I cannot pick and choose.

APPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
