    This is a slight issue, not a big one, but really annoying me. When I installed Lion, my user name (which is my full name) is displayed to the very right of the menu bar, and I can't figure out how to get it out of there. Anyone know how to get it out of there?

    Two ways:
    1. Hold command and drag it out of there.
    2. Go to User and Groups>Login Options in prefs and uncheck the box to have fast switching menu gone.

    I'm sure you probably noticed that you can change it to be just an icon instead. I like having the fast switch, but I too hated my full name being displayed. It's much nicer with just the icon.
