This is my 4th day of using Lion's "Natural Scrolling" and I have to say I've become comfortable enough with it that I don't see myself going back. I'm very curious as to what the rest of you think about it though. Anyone else make the switch?
I relate my scrolling to the scroll bar, down drags the scroll bar down so I can see the page farther down.
Natural scrolling is relating the scroll wheel direction to more like physically grabbing the page and moving it. Meh, we'll have to see I guess.
It's going iOS, no scroll bars, and scan your finger up and the page goes up, like grabbing it. On the iPad and iPhone it feels right, grabbing the page and moving it, but with a scroll wheel, not so natural. Maybe with a trackpad it would feel more "natural."

I'm not sure which to button choose in your poll.
I use Lion's way of scrolling in Lion. I use Snow Leopards way of scrolling in Snow Leopard. If I get confused between OS's, I scroll the other way. NO BIG DEAL. Can't believe it's a controversy. I've adapted to much more difficult things than this.

I gave it a week, and I really like it. In fact, I like it so much now that I changed my Mac Pro with Snow Leopard at work to scroll the "natural" way. I was zipping around in a photoshop file today (nuking a bunch of dust off a mirror surface) and thinking how much more natural it is to mouse that way now.

A pizza with radius "z" and height "a" has a volume calculated by pi*z*z*a.

Conversely, I went out and got a trackpad for my desktop for Lion ... after a week or so, the trackpad is now in storage. I just didn't see much, if any advantage of a trackpad over a multi-button mouse on the desktop ...
Oddly enough, I never use a mouse when on the Macbook Pros -- I always use the trackpad. Go figure =)
