Here's the question in play, ever since Apple eliminated the "computer" title from their company name (in 2007), we have seen a gradual lack of quality control regarding OS X software. Tiger was a great release, Leopard had some issues but wasn't far behind tiger as a really great release ....Then the chips hit the wall with Snow Leopard, epic fail from launch, not until 10.6.4 or 5 was when the real Snow Leopard showed up (meaning the one they should have launched with). So with this history, who will wait to upgrade to lion? Lion looks great, but All of Apples new OS's "look" great. So who will wait? and how long? ..... P.S. when the OS's like snow leopard were a big fail, the other applications followed suit, like Aperture 3 and iLife 11 were really buggy during launch.
