    My mate downloaded Lion on his Mac Book Air. Total disaster. Microsoft word and excell would not work. Photoshop would not work. It would not recognise his external WD hard drive so he lost upwards of 7000 photos. Slowed his maching away down and took far longer to boot up. He was not pleased at all. Please research this before you download it.

    Cheers

    Luckily, I have had 0 problems to say,
    The only problems I have had, was, some of the apps weren't available yet, so
    they just throw them away since they weren't compatible..
    Otherwise, all is good..

    Surely they don't really "throw them away"! Perhaps they are disabled pending updates?
    I know you think you understood what you think I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Ya, I guess that's another way of looking at it...
    But, at this moment though, they might as well be thrown away til the update are available.:)

    Unhappy Share This - Problem?

    Not sure if this is a Lion problem but I use 'Share This' sometimes to send on info, I have found that since upgrading to Lion I have not been able to use the email share option because the window that opens when I select 'Share This' does not seem to give me access to the Captcha input. It is not displayed when the To/From and Message screen comes up so I assume that scrolling should be working in this window to give access to it but it doesn't - it continues to work in the window behind the Share This window. When you press Share it just comes back and says that Captcha has not been completed properly.

    Have not tried investigating this further yet but has anyone had a similar experience. Its really rather a pain as 'Share This' is a useful tool.

    Had no problems at all on either of my machines. Burned a disk with the installation file and transferred it to each machine and away it went.

    I have not yet... I'm going to wait. It's not all that big of a deal to me.
