In another year or two, everything people are "worried" about will be such the norm that whatever the "new thing" is, people won't like it and want to stick with what Lion is now. Happens every major upgrade
Agreed. In the current form it's a bit limited, but once iCloud comes out things will make more sense. I think the biggest problem a lot of us have is trying to figure out what makes it tick. John Siracusa said it best in his review of Lion. From now on OS X isn't going to be graded on what has been added to the OS, it's gonna be what has been removed.
Manual vs Automatic :: Most people prefer automatic. At some point the effort it takes to understand the inner workings isn't worth the reward of that knowledge. How many developers today know a thing about machine code or file systems? Not many. They use developer tools that abstract them from the ones and zeros. Apple is doing the same thing, but for higher level operations.

Oh, I agree. That's why I always upgrade. Love new bling, and Lion hasn't let me down. I just like to take it slow. Too many things I rely on work in SL, not to mention I can't afford to upgrade apps. Very few companies are going to give Lion support for free. That doesn't mean I can't learn and explore and wait until it is the norm.
Correction: I installed a ClickToFlash update shortly after posting that it worked. After that, it didn’t anymore. Well, it did mostly, except HTML5 substitutes for embedded YouTube didn’t work: they just delivered the (optional) Flash version if you clicked.
But I just installed ANOTHER ClickToFlash update, and now all is well again
