    I'd be Lion if I didn't say this new OS looks sharp.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I have a three week old iMac. I was given to understand that I would qualify for a free upgrade. Anybody know how this works?

    Running Lion. Everything works nice so far, but I don't like how it scrolls so far down with the bouncing action. I LOVE the spelling auto correction! LOVE IT!!

    I tried that but it just takes me to the UK Apple Store with no indication of how to obtain the free upgrade! I am in the UK obviously!

    we should start a list of things working and not working.

    for me, working:

    final cut pro, adobe CS5 suite, final draft 8 (with the latest patch). Plus all the typical apple software (ilife 11, iWork's, etc.. obviously)

    not working:

    intego antivirus (I know I know, antivirus? why though? because in my line of work there's a LOT of excel documents that get shot back and forth and there's been quite a few times we'd had virus infected ones that came from someone's PC and we had to basically remove the virus before passing it on)

    Lion is public now, I can talk about it!
    How do you like it? I've been watching it evolve since dev preview 1 (build 11a390) and it's grown into a nice OS. There are still a few minor bugs here and there, but it's exciting. The Golden Master addressed most issues that I was having. Weirdly, Finder doesn't automatically open for me when I log in, I need to click the icon to have it open. This can be a pain for other log in items that rely on finder (my scripts to reconnect network drives for example), but I think that will be fixed in 10.7.1, easily. I've actually switched back from Chrome to Safari because fullscreen chrome pales in comparison to the sleekness of safari.

    I see a lot of you are freaking out about inverse scrolling (more natural feeling to me), but apparently you guys did no reading about the OS before upgrading. It's easily reversed back to the old method under system prefs> trackpad. After playing with developer preview 1, I actually went out and bought shareware (Smart Scroll) to reverse the scrolling. It just feels right. It makes more sense. Now if people have it the other way, it throws me off!

    The one thing that annoys the crap out of me is having to recheck scroll "with inertia" under universal access every time i log out and back in. For some reason even though the preference sticks, it doesn't keep the inertial scrolling until I tell it again that that is what I want.

    All in all, I'm satisfied, and for 30 bucks, **** yea!

    Lion installed and runs good, a few hiccups but to be expected with new software. Love the new car smell!

    does anyone know if updates to lion will be through the app store or through software update? I just got an iTunes update, but am wondering if updates for Lion will be through software update as well.
