Verified with an Apple Representative that they are having issues with Lion Up To Date verifications due to the heavy volume. They said to keep trying and it will eventually work.

Yeah that was my thought as well, no risks, just in case! Cheers.

@Van My Spotlight isn't still indexing. I did a clean install as well.

Hmmm, well it is a tad slow here - it's really noticeable on larger resolutions when you try to maximize a window (the animation is a bit choppy). To be fair, I am running an early 08 MB.

My choppiness I think is all caused by the spotlight indexing and time machine backing up right now.

What is your resolution set to Van? I bet mine is set lower (vision). I will try mine at the higher resolution.

Yeah, my spotlight took about 20 minutes to index - much longer than I thought. Everything seems to be running great now though.

I'm glad I got in there early and downloaded Lion as soon as it was released. It took less than 15 minutes but now I'm trying to download Xcode and it's predicting 2 hours - I guess the Mac App Store is feeling the strain a little. Either way, I've not heard anywhere about it buckling yet so well done to Apple for their excellent servers.

Still seems to be doing it here post-indexing. Oh well, I don't maximize apps all that often and even then, it's not all that bad. Maybe it's just Mendeley (as much as I love Mendeley, it is slower than every other app I have).

I have a dual monitor setup - the MB is at 1280x800 and the external is at 1920x1080.

It'll be interesting to see how many people start yelling when (unless they fixed it between GM and release) one finds they can only have one app full screen even with dual monitors...

Gets annoying when you run dual screens and want something full screen on one monitor with something else on monitor 2...

If it's been fixed, I'd be interested to hear about it.

Just had my second crash (kernel Panic) since installing Lion. This time I had Chrome, Mail, and Calendar open. My only option was to do a Hard Shut-Down.

I am about 3/4 through the download, so I guess I might wait till tomorrow to install

I fancy a clean install, so I have Time Machine backing up as well as my startup disk cloned to boot from, as well as a just installed 4 gig of ram

I am going to loose 2 apps (PowerPC) but the trusty old G4 can now run them if I need to use Transtype Pro and Fontlab

Download is a bit slow but at least it isn't hogging all my download bandwidth - which means the web and radio 4 streaming is still cool
