OS X Lion


[link to this post]
 
I hear OS X Lion is out today (Wednesday)!

Is it worth the upgrade?

I don't like the idea of things synching in the background like address book and calendar. That is when you get corruptions.

Let me have your thoughts....

There are lots of things not to like about Lion unless you like the computer to try and second guess your actions all the time.

The first thing you will want to do is turn off auto correct as you type or that will drive you nuts. I'm not going to bother upgrading as it doesn't offer any compelling reason over Snow Leopard. I somewhat fear for the future of the Mac platform as Apple has found that the mass market is more profitable for them so they seem to be putting all their efforts in that direction, I so hope that this prediction is wrong as I much prefer to use a Mac for my everyday system but things don't look promising.

I just wonder what won't work with Lion [ baaaaaad memories of HP PSC with Leopard and Snow Leopard ]

I'll wait a few months .

Mind you - there is the little problem of Mobile Me , which will go

Always keen to try new things I'll be installing Lion on a MacBook Air that I keep for 'sacrificial' purposes.

Not considering installing on my iMacs for several months until Lion proves stable and functional with my application software.

thanks for that

But at present I'm more interested in things like my printers - I have 3 , all relatively elderly , but they work - for ordinary printing anyway - an HP PSC 1410 [ and also its Deskjet equivalent , which was my husband's ] and a Canon Pixma IP 1600 .

IIRC HP were very slow bringing out updated Drivers for their printers and I'm not techie enough to be able to go and set up generic stuff - I need to wait for the manufacturers updates.

I do use Mobile Me , so it looks as if I'll be forced to Lion at some point

It is going to be fantastic not having to worry about saving documents and never having that sinking feeling of lost work again. Also great to see someone moving forward digital delivery and removing the need for a disc to be posted out - that should be possible in 2011. A others have said not all older software will def work but software developers have had notice that they needed to be ready so it's not Apple's issue if they are not keeping up with progress.
If it ain't broke don't fix it is the mantra of the windoze world in my book and I for one would not rather be using windoze 95 over Lion.

If it shows as PowerPC in the process list you'll need a new one frown

I'll wait and see about Java, but I gather Flash is out.
