    Hi guys,

    Here is a pic:

    Holy crap, I love launchpad to death and think it looks great, but that's just awful.

    Hmm, I didn't really notice a difference in the size of the icons when I installed .2 the other day. However, after reading this post, and then playing around with the Dock size, I've noticed that the larger the Dock, the smaller the icons are on LaunchPad. :D In the picture below, notice that my icons aren't nearly as big as the OP's, and the Dock is barely visible.

    FYI, I'm on a 13" MBP.

    Looks like they are getting it worse...

    Any news with mission control?

    I just opened launchpad and the icons are definitely way bigger than before, while still spanning the same total number of icons per page. On my 27" inch iMac it looks totally ridiculous. Not that I was ever using launchpad before... I mean, I've been using this new dev build for a full day now and just noticed it.

    Also, I've just gotta point this out: When has Apple ever made changes to the cosmetics of OS X during an interim update? I thought that all these things ended after GM, and the rest of the releases contain bugfixes and optimizations. Since they're still screwing with the UI, it makes me wonder if even they themselves don't feel launchpad was done properly, so they're tweaking it. Still, this is a step in the wrong direction. It's still very awkward.

    GM Lion icons in LPad are smaller than the folders you can make with them.. looks as if the sizes are now the same.

    The option to turn off menu bar transparency came in a Leopard update.

    You should allowed to be able to toggle the sizes of the icons in Launchpad.
    Because they look really bad when they're too small.

    What's the sha1 checksum for the 10.7.2 update DMG file? You can find out by entering this command in terminal:

    openssl sha1 <full path to the DMG file (you can drag and drop the file into terminal app if you do not know the full path) >

    I'm still rather surprised that Apple is getting so toylike. Launchpad is like a bad child's toy. Gimmicky, cheap looking, but hey, people eat up anything Apple dishes out & rave about it. You've got to give them credit for pulling it off. No one else could.

    I like it. Moreover, I think it looks quite elegant. For the most part, Apple has always gone to great lengths to design gorgeous icons (inexplicably phoning it in on some like Mission Control, Expose, etc.), why not showcase them? The blurring of the desktop background is also a nice tough.

    As long as it's done nicely (Vista wasn't), I'm all for the addition of graphics.

    And some people just bitch about anything new or different. Just because person A doesn't like it, doesn't mean persons B,C and D should dislike it too. Frankly, Launch Pad works so much better than having folders in the dock or using spot light when you use gestures to manage everything else on the UI, it is clearly an extension of the gensture interface to the UI and extreemly intuative to use.

    Frankly I find using keyboad short cuts and the keyboard in general extreemly clunky when using gestures to navigate everything else in the UI. The new UI is sort of a complete set, Mission Control, Launch Pad, new gestures all work together, and when used together they really make for a seemless UI interaction.

    Sure I can understand there is a learning curve and adjustment for people with years and years of short cuts built into PC use, but once that shift is made, it is amazing how smooth and easy it works.

    Hd 3000

    Does the update solve the sluggish HD 3000 performance? Still holding back the upgrade to Lion. Using latest top model 15" MBP, but the graphic performance is just horrible.

    Other MBP I own, 13inch 2009 model works like a charm.

    Likely not drivers. HD 3000 was a horrible choice by Apple.

    There really is no reason to bitch, on either side.

    For those who like Launchpad -- great, use it and enjoy! For those who don't -- we still have the Dock, Spotlight, Finder, and open, in addition to fantastic third-party apps like Alfred. ;)

    My 6490m (although not a powerful GPU) is able to run 1080p smoothly yet struggles with Mission Control. I hope it's due to some software issues and not Apple creating an OS that does not work smoothly with their newest machines.

    I'm getting a real strange bug with this build: when using either Quicklook or Preview to view JPG images, black and white images are displayed as color-inverted. Since this doesn't happen in 10.7.0, I'm guessing it's a graphics rendering screwup.

    Well that's appropriate, since most Lion users seem to be whining like children over nothing.
