This is the first time in the history of OS X that I'm not on the edge of my seat waiting for the update. Not because I don't think it's interesting or a worthwhile upgrade, but because iOS has stolen the show for me.

I'll still upgrade on day one, though. Debating on whether or not I'll do a fresh install …probably won't. I'll wait until I get a new Mac and start from scratch then.

I totally agree. I will upgrade for a few reasons (icloud). Debating on getting a trackpad because I don't see myself using it that much.

And when ios5 comes out, there will be no reason

Gives just a spinning beach ball for 5 to 10 minutes. Then I give up.

However.
I just tried again today - and it works.

Possible since that my (cable amplifier) had no power. I discovered this just a few days ago due to the amplifier power supply is behind a 6 X 4 foot tall book case,, which takes 2 people to move <-- so how that got disconnect is anyones guess ? ? and for how long ?

Now, AppleInsider is saying Lion may be here as early as Wednesday. Why are they waiting? It's supposed to be ready to go.


Well, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night. They better make some changes and do it soon. -Things Goin' On/Lynyrd Skynyrd

So it's coming out on the 20th US time? I have a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and btw, a memory of 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Apple says this is enough, but I know next to nothing about processors. Is this on the slow end I would guess? Installing a new OS near the minimum specs possible can leave one with a pretty miserable response time, if memory* serves.
