    In addition you stated  you would try to watch a Quicktime Movie or Flash movie and then put the iMac to sleep on one of your customer's iMacs.

    Quote the post please, you do not speak for me.

    Well Duhhh right back! Snow Leopard is a great system designed for speed and it runs smoothly. Lion has been out long enough for Apple to iron out its problems. I and the other 48% and growing daily because of the amalgum of problems in Lion and Apple's failure to remedy the aforementioned problems. Your remarks about software developers leaving Snow Leopard users behind are not only incredible but unrealistic. Snow Leopard's architecture is up to date and adaptable to almost any application save the ones that rely on Lion apps. But really who needs them?

    Lion has had 2 updates. SL 8 (9 if you count the small update added to update smoothly to Lion) SL wasn't that stable at all until 10.6.6 and wasn't at it's best until 10.6.8. And so you thinkit's reasonable for Apple to Get Lion 100% perfect in six months and two updates? Get real. That is ridiculous. You obviously know nothing about the evolution of OSs. You last statement doesn't make much sense as the architecture of Lion is different to that of SL.

     

    Cheers

    No SL was stable as of 10.6.3 It came of age in that update.

    Ben - If you can find SO MANY users with these problems - why can you not figure out how to install Snow Leopard that you are so in love with?

     

    These complaints are similar to people who hated cassettes, then cd's, then DVD's, then Blu-ray....

     

    Just like the width of your tie, the size of your collar, and the length of your hair - times move forward. If you choose to stay in the past, then you need to learn work-arounds. And - as has been the case with every new technology for the past 30 years, sometimes you get punched in the kidney and have to pay out of pocket to buy new hardware to go with ther shiny new OS. "All of those problems" you speak of are limited to pre-2010 machines, and the remainder are part-specific to a very confined set of serial numbers.

     

    Sorry - Your complaints are just kinda lame. I have a copy of snow leopard if you want to buy it. Or you can buy it on eBay. Use BootCamp to install it, or do a clean and fresh.

    Then why were there another 5 updates?

    And yours is running just great without any further updates right?

    PS - Failure to learn, read the instructions, or understand the purpose of something does not make it a bug.

    Yep. very happy with it. And it will keep getting better. That's 50 times I've told you.

    Eric,I don't know what you are talking about. As I said before I have Snow Leopard (10.6.8) installed on 3 of my Macs. 2 iMacs and a MacBook Pro. Don't tell me about my complaints being lame they are evidenced by many Mac users. They feel the same as I do. you just heard from another user on the preceding page that had a Nightmare with lion Christmastime.You may be a big fan of Lion and defensive in that regard but don't tell anyone with valid criticism that their complaints are lame.

    If you think you told me 50 times then your posting is as invalid as your argument that Software Developers will leave Snow Leopard users behind in the near future. I don't see any truth in that until perhaps Apple releases OS Gorilla.

    BTW Eric,On the iMac Discussion web site you stated that I was a 10.5 lover. I corrected you then and reminded you that I was on 10.6.8 But apparently you exited that Discussion board.
