What is the general consesus? Will Lion ever be as good a perfomer as Snow Leopard? Lion uses more CPU and because of this it makes the Macbooks run hotter. Scrolling in Lion makes the CPU spike. The shut - down and boot up is longer in Lion. It eats more ram. Will this be fixed with .1 or .2 or this simply how the operating system is designed as in because of the new feautures it is not as good a performer as Snow Leopard? My opinion is that a OS X primarily features is that it should run the hardware in the best and most effective way. Snow Leopard was build around this idea but sadly it seems Lion is not.
