    Dear Csound1, Its great with your small sarcastic remarks all around just this topic alone.

    Either, your having a bad day and need to vent on frustrated apple customers, or just in need of a nice big red apple to cheer you up.

     

    If you have good knowledge or real answers, then please dive in and help out. I do not believe you got your Level 5 from being sarcastic. Try what helps instead.


    And to answer the last remark:


    • "If you didn't install it how do you know it was buggy?"


    Answer: Its not hard to see if Lion is buggy or not, by reading on what thousands and thousands are saying. So when slyguy_28 writes, that he avoided buggy lion, he is right, not wrong.

    Since Mountain lion is not set for releast until summer - you will have owned Lion for 4 - 6 months. You really can't expect a free upgrade after all that time.

    No-one can speak from experience when they have none, you installed Lion I assume and have some experience.

  • Sofus Comer Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    Yes, I installed, reinstalled and latest reinstalled again. Severe problems with the following

     

    • sudden weird mouse behaviour on two different mice. Logitech drivers proclaim to be working with lion. Suddenly mouse, drags everything with it.
    • fcpx performance.
    • esata drivers for sonnettech Express 34 Pro cards and Sonnettech esata drives not appearing. more than 10 TB discs not available everyday, cause sometimes they work.
    • Graphiccard shimmering at times, when using fcpx. Screen goes darkblue and very high contrast.
    • These are some of the larger things going on, actually...


    So there are bugs, and big hairy ones too, and I can now (again) tell others about it, and folks like slyguy_28 can safely assume, likewise, as I pass my experience on to him and others.

  • CT Level 6 Level 6 (17,270 points)

    Quite right, Softus Corner. Big hairy THIRD PARTY bugs.

  • bbfc Level 3 Level 3 (845 points)

    Those are all third party driver issues, not issues with Lion itself.

    That's a shame for you, I have Lion installed on several machines, from 2008 MBP's all the way up to 2012 machines that came with it installed, I have had no problems with any of them.

     

    Unlike you I stay totally away from 3rd party peripherals (especially ones from Logitech) maybe that has something to do with it.

     

    Never forget that an assumption is a guess with a few more letters in it.

    My Mini has slowed down drastically on occasion, other than that, I am quite pleased with all the nifty features Lion has brought to the table. I believe Apple has snuck in a preview of Mountain Lion on 10.7.3 as I now get notifications popping up while watching a movie via VLC or QuickTime. I only hope it allows the use of touch screens as controllers. I can build an app to use my iPhone as a remote rather than using my magic touch pad as I do now.

    Thank you for telling us how excited you are. That was very helpful.

    Wish I could say that all my Adobe software is either crippled or not working at all and I REALLY need Reader!

  • Frank N Honest Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Actually, Tom in London, I don't believe that Apple pay dividends to shareholders (or they havent yet). Does that clarify things for you?

  • charliem2019 Level 1 Level 1 (35 points)

    Yes, but only if you sign up for a apple developer account for $99 a year. If you don't want to spend $99 dollars every year, you can just install the new OSs every year for $30.

    Apple pay $2.35 per share currently

  • Frank N Honest Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes indeed. I read that interesting news too. First dividends since 1995 beginning from this July.
