    I've been following this board closely as I'm keen to see what OS X Lion will offer. I've seen a number of posters saying that things are ok for a .0 release but the little niggles will improve with the .1.

    I've only experienced one OS update whilst in the Mac world and I can't remember how long the Snow Leopard .0 to .1 took. Is this something that gets pushed quite quickly.

    I assume once Lion .0 is out the user base will increase markedly compared to the developer testing thats happening now so in turn feedback will increase allowing Apple to focus on the real niggles that users find.

    10.6.1 was released on September 10th, less than two weeks after the initial release.

    For further reference, 10.5.1 was 18 days from the initial release. So yes, we should see 10.7.1 shortly.

    OS updates are rather speedy for critical issues but 3rd party app updates take longer, 1-2 months.
