Question: Scroll goes the wrong way in Lion

Installed Lion last night. Does anybody else think it's weird that you now have to scroll backwards. That is, two fingers up moves the page down and two fingers down moves the page up. Will take some getting used to.

Had me stumped, too, for a few minutes.

But you can change it back.

Can be found under "System Preferences" (in my case by unchecking "Scroll direction: natural" under the "Scroll & Zoom" tab in the "Trackpad" settings under the "Hardware" options).

I don't have a "Scroll & Zoom" tab or a 'natural' setting under the Trackpad system preferences. However at the top of the Trackpad preferences, it says 'move content in the direction of finger movement'. When I unselected that, my scrolling went back to normal.
