I'm hoping they will fix a bunch of this crap with 10.7.1
When 10.6.0 came out, it was a complete clusterfuck too.


i kinda like the login screen, but the background is horrible.

Because half of the software released in the past year requires Snow Leopard
And there is already Lion-only software.

What you don't see behind the interface is updated APIs, not available in the older version of the OS/SDK. Developers *want* to use new API that allows them to include cool new things in their software.

Reviews have been a bit disappointing, I'm still waiting to make the switch but I really just want it for gestures and air drop.

the decision is easy for me... it just doesn't work on my MBP. I guess I'll be sticking with Snow Leopard.

my late-2009 mini at work and my gf's 2006 macbook do not have it.
mid-2010 mini and the original unibody MBP (late-2008) do.


as far as disappointing reviews.... what exactly are they disappointed about?
everything seems to work fine for me. some small weirdness here and there, but no show-stoppers. i was able to configure everything to my liking. 4 computers upgraded so far.

Thanks for the heads up with airdrop.

I only mean disappointing in the sense the I expected more 'rave reviews'. Most of them have highlighted that they find some of the new features useless or annoying. As posted above though, I'm really just excited about gestures and airdrop though. I'll use airdrop every damn day.

Recently made the switch to Lion, love it so far. I actually prefer the reverse scrolling, thought that was strange. I picked it up immediately.

I HATE the new scroll bars though.
