    Maybe not the .0 version, but you should upgrade eventually. if you're serious and hold onto tradition, you'll be stuck with a slow computer when 10.7 is the standard, ships with your new computer, only option.

    Better get used to it, whether you like it or not.

    Otherwise, you'll one day need new hardware and be mind blown over the new software you're forced into.

    That's my best argument :) and possibly not even a good one.

    I really like Full Screen. indifferent for the launchpad, didnt like natural scroll, swiping between full screen apps is awesome, mission control seems like a fail.

    AND INSTALLING SMB3 for XBMC WAS A NIGHTMARE!

    I think the better get used to it, whether you like it or not is pretty accurate.

    I think that everyone should upgrade anyway due to the lack of updates for old versions of OS X.

    I know some security updates come out for the previous version of OS X but Apple wont release any driver or functionality updates to previous versions of OS X once a new OS is out. Kinda crappy that machines running 10.6.8 will be running the same graphics drivers forever now... unless you update to 10.7

    Any word on compatibility for MacTheRipper (MTR) 3.0 R14m? I haven't seen anything on this yet.

    Yeah it still really sucks they omitted Rosetta.

    That's a huge deal breaker for some people.

    Luckily, I haven't run into any issues where I needed it.
