    is anyone having trouble with the "preview"?? normally i select all my photos then double click one so i can browse them all, then right click the ones i don't like and move to trash. now when i do the move to trash thing it crashes, and the pictures are on the left hand side of the screen whereas in leopard they were on the right!!!

    So I just jumped on board the Lion bandwagon and I gotta say, it's pretty cool.

    The launchpad feature isn't all that; tapping on the app folder from the dock works fine.

    Mission control however, that's awesome. I like compartmentalizing my desktop.

    Natural scrolling, it took some time to get use to, then I figured out that I could turn it off and I did.

    I haven't had any issues w/ compatibility, Adobe CS5, Office 2011, Steam, Chrome, and Firefox all work fine on Lion. Prior to upgrading, I did an update on everything.

    Overall impression, I hate Steve Jobs because I love my MBP.


    Here's a cool picture of a lion:

    i agree. the only annoying part is that i can't open a new internet browser in the new desktop, when i try (cmnd + t) it takes me to the other desktop where i have to open a new window and then drag it into the new desktop

    have you guys experienced extreme sluggishness after the computer wakes up from sleep? i've been reading on mac forums and it seems like its a rampant problem with the new OS

    What kind of Mac are you using? My sister has a new 11" MBA, and says that both start-up and restart from sleep is lightning fast.

    Start up is a little slow for me on my late 2009 13" MBP, but waking after sleep is lightning fast, as if I had never put it to sleep.

    its not start-up or restart, it's actual system performance that is lagging after restarts from sleep. Also full screen video becomes choppy. Seems to be a common problem (so I'm reading)

    I'm pretty content with snow leopard so I don't see myself upgrading anytime soon. :D

    I have an iMac early 2009 (24 inch monitor). It wakes up from sleep immediately with Lion.

    I'm liking it, even tho I use the MacBook Pro less and less since I got the iPad 2.
