    That is extremely unlikely.

    Thus far I have installed Lion on 9 machines (7 of which are detailed in my "Lion with a relaxed attitude" post. All work correctly, all run faster, use less HD space, have a smaller memory footprint and are more responsive than prior to the installation.

     

    Lion for me ranks as a superior to it's predecessor in all respects (except price)

    Nonetheless, I am experiencing problems to one degree or another on the three Macs I have upgraded as I described.  The problems with the Mac mini, in particular, are extremely annoying. 

     

    Those of you who keep posting comments along the lines of, "I have no problems so that means that you don't either," are simply not being helpful.  No one has posted any specific information about anything that is supposedly working better. 

     

    Based on my own experiences thus far, I see no compelling reason to upgrade to Lion unless you are specifically interested in the changes to the GUI.  Whatever performance improvements there may be relative to Snow Leopard, they are negligable at best.

     

    The rate at which this forum is accumulating new posts regarding various problems with the upgrade should be enough to clue you in.

    What would be useful is to know how your installation differed from "Those of you" etc, the fact that we are having no problems suggests a problem either with methodology or hardware, you aren't supplying any information regarding that.

    Would it be meaningful if I told you that I've upgraded a 2007 iMac, a 2008 MBP and a 2010 Mac mini?  What methodology or hardware issue would cause problems on my Macs (and the Macs of countless others who have reported problems in this forum) but not on yours?  Might it be the OS upgrade itself?

     

    First, weighed against the million or so users with no problems the dozens (maybe hundreds) of posters here doesn't even reach .1%

     

    It seems that rather than provide information all you want to do is argue and postulate,

     

    It's such a nice weekend that all I can say is...

     

    Good luck
