How do I revert back to 10.7 from 10.8?
You do a clean install of 10.7 via the recovery partition.
OS X Lion: About Lion Recovery
Lion Recovery Disk Assistant
To create a Clean Install (formerly known as Erase & Install) of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard (the 29 USD Upgrade DVD is a fully working retail version of Mac OS X and does not need a prior installation of Mac OS X on the Mac), follow one of the following guides:
Short version: Clean Install of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
Long version: Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard: How to Erase and Install
Didn't think 10.8 was out yet. If you have a time machine backup you could revert back to a previous installation.
It isn't, just the Developer Preview, which became available to the public today.
Well to Developers anyway.
And thus to all the others, who will look for it and install it anyway, and then will come here, and ask how to remove it.
Ah, computer users.
And those who ask here about it shouldn't be answered since either they should be asking in the Apple Developer forums or not have the software.
But deleting the OS is like "Format C:\", thus I can't help myself and always will provide steps to do so.
Those beta previews are an irresistible honeypot for the impatient kiddies.
I will go back to 10.7, too. - 10.8 is missing many convenient things and the only real cool new things are AirPlay and Dictation (how often will you REALLY use both?).
Therefore, i have to sacrify: battery remaining time in menu, apple+alt+ctrl+8 invert doesn't work anymore, apple mail doesn't give visual feedback in the folder view while loading email. Little snitch firewall doesn't work anymore (at least for me, also not the preview version)
Apple started with 10.7 to add useless pseudo-features to the OS and forgets to focus on the real important small details, i don't like this direction and i'm not going to support it. If i want a mobile phone, i take my iphone, i don't need b*****t on my computer.
Click on the battery?
What a terrible complaint. Besides, it DOES still exist, but the keyboard shortcut is disabled by default.
And you need this because...?
Why not tell us what specifically they should be focusing on.
So the 10.8 is only for developers right ? In case of MAC i don't think the Beta versions is of any good.
I nearly died of excitement. I almost checked YouTube and thepiratebay.
1. Yes i know you can click on the battery. that sucks!
2. Why remove it, when it's not used for anything new!?
3. Because i want to see what's going on. Ever heard of usability? Probably not.
4. Very simple: keep features when there is no better alternative !
5. They've also removed support for RSS ... (Safari and Mail!)
6. Select multiple emails in Mail, it shows a fancy useless stack but not anymore the count of selected emails
Luckily the solution is very simple for me: stay with 10.7 ...
