    "I've seen many comments about people having different problems and trouble with the new OS X Lion, does anyone recommend me to download it?"

     

    Yes, I do.

     

    Regards.

    My original additions to this chain had to do with wake up from sleep- a minor inconvenience - and VPN connectivity. A potential show stopper.  For the second, the NIH help desk figured out that the most recent cisco version did not work, but an earlier version did.  Bottom line is this is a salvage pathway.  Most of the rest of the posts are part of the lunatic fringe.  I take some chances being an early adopter.  I don't appreciate when major glitches cannot be salvaged quickly.  Not one person on this post offered a solution.  Which in any conversation is a problem.

     

    My refrain is I would like the wakeup problem fixed in the first update.  I concur with S. jobs, whoever he might be.

    definitely NOT.

    OSX LION is a HORRIBLE MESS, and Lion Server is even WORSE.

     

    i've re-installed LION 3 times (upgraded from a clean install of Snow Leopard), yet the system logs are POLLUTED with thousands of error messages, the machine is SLOOOW to startup/shutdown, incompatibilities with ESET CyberSecurity... on and on.

     

    do not waste your money on this piece of junk. Snow Leopard was at least somewhat reliable, but Lion reminds of Windows Vista (utter junk and a waste of money).

    Alan, if you're going to reply, please attempt to be useful and not rude.

     

    Tell the reporter to detail the problem so that we will know what he thinks is bad.

     

    If you do not, then you are simply yelling back at him, offering nothing more constructive than that which you are criticizing him for and in the process, perpetuating the problem.

    LION has good potential, but very unstable right how. Yes, there are several problems with it. I would recommend sitting back and letting the repair patches come out, then download the latest version that will be available after the patches have been released.

     

    No use upgrading to LION while it's a hot mess. If you have Snow Leopard/Leopard just relax and wait.

    indeed, i'll be 'upgrading' from my iMacs from Lion to Snow Leopard later tonight. that'll learn me for making the huge mistake of DOWNGRADING to OSX LION.

    I'm running Lion on a new Mini and an upgraded Air. I have personally experienced the following problems:

     

    • Mail crashes occasionally, although this seems to have "fixed itself" recently.
    • Can't update the bundled iLife apps on the new Mini (this has been referred to engineering by AppleCare support)
    • Copy a file to a remote server in the Finder and it vanishes after the copy. (Reboot fixes this for a while).
    • Some weirdness with calendar syncing via MobileMe, it seems to now be part of Mail sync which I didn't have on. Now it works but it's confusing.
    • My Apple monitor briefly blinks black for a split second from time to time.

     

    None of these are "show stoppers" for me. It's really great having these forums, what's funny is that Apple support don't seem to read them or even monitor "trending" discussions. When I rang about the inability to update bundled iLife they said they'd never heard of that issue - I pointed out there were discussions about it with thousands of views on their board.

     

    So overall, I prefer Lion to Snow Leopard. I am looking forward to the first update though.

    With all due respect, Alex, you handle the nut jobs your way, and I'll handle them mine. Everyone loses when morons are allowed to p*ss and sh*t all over this forum without being challenged. How can anyone reason with that kind of behavior? Whether you agree with my methods or not, my intention is to help preserve the integrity of the Apple discussion forum. Potentially, it's a valuable resource for the exchange of helpful information. It would be a shame to see it degenerate into the internet equivalent of a food fight. There are more than enough sites like that already.

    You end up sounding like a loud, obnoxious, richard cranium and it doesn't help get any more useful information.

     

    In short, "it's     not     helping."
