Just a question the new OS X lion is now available.

I have an IMAC that is compatiable.

is it worth the 20 bucks to upgrade.

What big differences will I see.

What are your opinions?

Should i upgrade? would an upgrade provide me with protection from anything?

What changes would i see?

For me, yes. For you, depends if you'll use the 250 new features.

What are your opinions?
I love it. Runs just as fast, some apps even faster (like iTunes). I love the new gestures, natural scrolling is pretty sweet, and full screen apps rock.

1.) New look.
2.) Safari speedup.
3.) 64-bit iTunes
4.) Airdrop.
5.) Launchpad.
6.) New wallpapers.
7.) Resume.
8.) Better security.

Those are just some of the features that make it worth upgrading - for me, the two most important things are the speedup in Safari, and the new look/wallpapers.
