    Hey Doc, you can post all you meaningless dribble in one post if you like. Using numerous replies (that are a bit silly) won't make the number of sensible posts in the tread grow. Just makes you look like you are struggling for a clever reply (which you are). And the other post you refer to really wasn't worth a comment on.

     

    Bottoms up old chap

    DCChord568 has it right. My first computer was TRS80 (going back to at least 1984). Every single OS change I have made since then has been for the better, including all Mac OS upgrades through Snow Leopard, even the original swithch to OSX. Yes, there have been bugs along the way, but those rarely had anything to do with the intent of the system and the changes that were made to it. In fact nearly all changes represented a natural evolutionary step forward that ultimately enhanced the user experience without completely re-inventing it. It was not necessary to "learn" the new thing because the new thing made sense and was intuitive. Much of that vanished with Lion. I am using Lion on two computers and find it, for the most part, usualble, but there is no doubt that is less intuitive, more labor intensive and wastes more time than any previous system. I suspect that along with all of the things that people have objected to, there are some fundimental changes under the hood that may result in overall better performance, security, or perhaps cloud or 64 bit related, but the user experience for the first time since the original Mac has been (hopefully not) irrevocably changed, and not for the better. If it takes more time to accomplish stuff, even when you know the system and can use it as efficiently as possible, then it is not a good thing. The Mac should make our lives easier and should never move backwards or become more cumbersome like Lion has. Even those who defend it admit that it takes longer to do stuff. Why would anyone want to do that? The claim was made that the vast majority of people who are running Lion are quite satisfied. I wonder how true that is. Amongst my geek friends and professionals including several IT guys, it is univerally despised. If the newbies like it as is, fine. Let them have it, but allow more advanced users to configure it to enhance, not retard workflow. If Apple doesn't, some 3rd party developer will make a killing with a well designed add-on control panel to do just that.

    I wonder if you might consider paragraph separations and other grammatical niceties?

    Evidently, English is not your first language.

    On the contrary...you proved mine:

    Take a Xanax and go read the tiger through to SL forums. Oh of course you don't want to because you know that my statement was correct and may make you look foolish.......wooops. Too late! lol You seriously have yourself confused within this thread and it's title. My answer is "great, thank you. Never had a problem and would recommend it highly."

     

    Cheers

    Just responding to your flow of rambling ignorance.

    Spell check works in Lion. There, I said something positive about Lion.

    Have a happy day.

    If this wasn't the net I might consider proofing and using some grammatical and punctuation niceties. At least I was not nasty to everone who disagrees with me and is entitled to their opinion. You, on the other hand, seem to fear ideas that are not your own or that disagree with what you so strongly believe. That's fine, but I thought this was a place to share ideas and make suggestions, not to hassle everyone else about how lame you think they are.

    Oh yes that's another thing I like in Lion. Much improved. Very helpful. Thank you

    Dont give up Dr Head. Who knows, one day one of your many hundreds of posts  may be marked as 'helpful'.

    Glad you’ve discovered Spell Check. I certainly wouldn’t say it’s better in Lion. BTW, if you count the number of posts in this thread you’ll find that your posts outnumber mine, and I at least try to add something useful while you are busy trying to take cheap shots at me and ignoring DChord568 and Douglas Miner. Why don’t you attempt to defend yourself against them? My “many posts” have been mostly responding to your unhelpful nonsense.
