    Anyone using? What are your thoughts? What pointing device are you using? Program incompatibilities?

    I've gone ahead and invested in Lion, not regretting it. I've upgraded it to Server edition.
    I haven't run into a program yet that wouldn't open.

    Are you using the trackpad or mouse?

    No major problems yet. Not sure how keen I am on Launchpad but will get used to it.

    p.s. using a magic mouse on iMac

    Oh and check if you have anything using PPC code before upgrading as it won't work at all. I think CS3 falls into this category according to a few reports but I've not checked that myself.

    Check out roaringapps.com.

    Overall, I've had only a few issues that I was able to troubleshoot with updates.

    Thanks. I just want to make sure my photoshop elements 9 works with it and see if it was worth the upgrade if I don't currently us a trackpad.

    I'm worried about programs not working.
    I have a bunch of Adobe programs that don't wish to upgrade.
    I know Quicken won't work. For that I'll get a windows version.

    I'm loving it. No problems with any of my programs and loving the "iOS like" features.

    Just installed and the first setting I changed was Scroll direction: Natural, Seriously would anyone use that ?
    Hmm where is my server admin icon I wonder, Looks like I need some time to fiddle and adjust to the new layout

    I still use Office 2004. From what I read, it won't work.
    I need to use Office for work and am not looking to upgrade since my Mac is not a company computer.

    I installed it on my laptop yesterday, first impression: so far so good. I like it, I haven't run into any major compatibility problems, the only real complaint I have at the moment is Launch Pad... it's a bit of a yawn, I don't really see any practical use for it, the application menu on the dock is easier to use IMO. :)

    That's not a complaint though .. that's just an icon you drag out of the dock and let go, .. to make it go away. You don't have to use it.

    I wish there was a program that would read all my apps and tell me what will no longer run.

    A fairly pointless upgrade all in all.

    Thanks, but I saw that website earlier. I have many programs I rarely use but when I need it, I need it.
    I was looking for something that would scan my drive and check to what programs would work maybe by comparing it to a list of known programs.
    I'm holding off with Lion. From what I am reading, why do I want my computer to look like an iPad?

    Just found this tip at http://www.retrotechs.net/?p=1581

    PowerPC - not OK
    Universal - should be OK
    Intel - OK

    added
    So so far it looks like Quicken, Office 2004, Photoshop CS3, Adobe Golive, BBEdit won't work.
    I'll have to get used to Dreamweaver.
