I am dying to try Lion. But should I wait?
Advertisements [?]
We have 5 Macs. Two have Leopard; three have Snow Leopard. My most critical computer is my MacPro. I have all my business on there and it needs to be healthy. It currently runs Leopard and is doing just fine, thankyouverymuch. All software is the most current version - except for one and it needs outside assistance from the company's tech support to update it to Snow Leopard. After that, I have no idea if it will run on Lion.

Apart from that, we are torn between "if it ain't broke don't fix it" and "yeeHA! Pool Party! Everybody in!"

We have a houseguest this week. He has a MacBookAir. Last night he downloaded Lion and has it running. So far, so good. A bit of a learning curve with the scrolling and Mission Control and that sort of thing, but it all looks very promising. That said, he thinks it might actually be a bit slower than his Snow leopard install was.

What's the general feeling among the DU Apple users? Lion Yes or Lion No?
