Ha, I don't see it. My apps take longer to launch than they did in OS X. Apps folder, the apps are a bit disjointed and I have to hit arrange all by name to get them in order. Documents - some of the documents have a perforated outline before they actually appear as thumbnails and take a few seconds to load in, again not like OS X. iChat encryption - I fired up my iChat window and I got an encryption prompt saying that my encryption has expired and asked if I wanted to renew it, I said Ok and then the encryption fails? LOL! Oh boy, what an upgrade. Mail - I close mail and it just sits there 5/10 times and I have to force quit it to get it to close. So, as of yet, it is not impressing me, I am eagerly awaiting an update to fix some of these issues. I must say though, that despite pissing me off quite a bit, I do love the screen recording and the nice new features of Quicktime X, but like most of you I had to reinstall Quicktime Pro 7 to keep my format conversion. This reminds me of the iMovie situation we just went through with the past iLife upgrade where many had to retain iLife '06 HD to keep many of the features that were left out of iLife '08. Why Apple would not stock Quicktime X full of all the QT7 features is beyond me. Well, I am just over here chugging along dealing with SL for the time being.
