After running my new used late 2008 MBP with the installed 10.7.2 for a few days and checking out the major new features in Lion, I decided to revert to Snow Leopard 10.6.8. 1) Lion is clearly geared for iOS gadget integration and iCloud, which doesn't interest me. 2) The Launch Pad and Mission Control are just minor irritants that I neither want nor need. 3) I like the old Dashboard style much better. 4) I intensely dislike the new Mail UI, (though I realize it's easy to switch to classic view, so not a big deal). 5) SL seems to run a little faster, with better response times. But this is slight. I've heard that Lion is perhaps faster on brand new '11 MBPs, but I'm thinking SL may be better optimized for my older model, even with the 8GB memory I have on it now. Lion seems to allocate memory less efficiently... 6) My own bias is to dislike any product that I perceive is trying to wow me with eye candy... Anyone else deciding that Snow Leopard is a superior OS to Lion? Or that Lion may even turn out to be Apple's Vista? Just curious.
