    I was looking the the Setup Assistant resources and I have found that Lion has the same startup video as Leopard. Here is the path to see for yourself:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources

    When does Apple change the startup video or do you think that that it will be the same as Leopard's?

    It's gonna be the same video. If you watch it again, you'll see that it easily suits Leopard, Snow Leopard as well as Lion. All three feature space. Plus, nowhere in the video does it reveal the name of the OS X.

    Just my 2¢.

    Jesus God in Heaven, I hope they change it. We've been hearing the same one since September of 2007. I can't imagine the royalties for "Exodus Honey" by Honeycut. :eek:

    :rolleyes: lol, I really hope as well, that they change the intro video, its ok to see it twice for Leopard and Snow Leopard, but Lion is a different cat so should be a different video.

    I believe previously they only ever changed it in the actual GM build of the OS.

    I think they'll change it. It's a new OS. They haven't even bothered to put the actual gesture videos in the Trackpad/Mouse system preference yet. We're still a few builds out from GM.

    Snow Leopard was also a new OS...same video though.

    There's no doubt that there will be at least one more update before GM.

    I think they'll remove it. As a matter of fact, I didn't see any sort of Welcome video when I installed Lion (if I remembered correctly).

    My guess would be a similar intro to iOS 5 setup.

    You guys are probably right, but it would be a shame to lose it.

    The video only shows up if you clean install Lion. If you upgrade, it'll take you straight to the desktop.

    I am glad that someone is interested in the first startup video. :D

    Yeah, this is a real world problem. We all install Lion DP every 15 minutes, so we need a SOLUTION for this REAL problem! Not!?

    ersonally I want it, preferably a new one, but even without a new one, just so when I clean upgrade my boatload of Lion Macs I can see if I can time it right so I get Exodus Honey in sync across all my Macs... I was 3 seconds out with Snow Leopard.

    If you are doing clean installs on more than 5 computers, then you are wasting a lot of time. Go look up InstaDMG and do clean restores instead. Even if you are just doing the base OS with no customizations it will take you down to 5 minutes or so per machine, and you can do that in parallel if you use broadcast.

    And if you don't turn it off, you still go through the startup video.

    SL was not really a new OS, but a improved version of Leopard.

    That's a pretty big statement. Certainly wasn't a big visual change, but the under the hood improvements made 10.6 one of the biggest upgrades to OS X so far.

    Well, I am no expert, but SL was basically a sequel to Leopard. It did not really have a "new identity" and UI more or less the same. The price was very low as well. I see it like a big Service Pack. Yes, the under the hood was a big update in order to boost performances and so on, but thats all.

    Seeing Lion as a bigger turn, UI changed, under the hood as well, many more features, and even the distribution method. So based on that, I hope to see a new intro video :)
