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.
Logitech Performance MX wireless mouse, but about to buy the trackpad.
If I get Lion, I will too
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
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.
