    Are you talking about the USB stick you purchase from Apple or the one you make with that recovery utility? I have never made one with Apples utility but burned my own bootable stick with the full install on it.

    I've only treid Apple's recovery usb option. I haven't yet tried making my own bootable stick. I'm reinstalling OSX right now, and will try it when everything is done. Apple's Lion recovery takes SOOO long. Too long imo.

    What issues are you having with fullscreen?

    I have Plex running fullscreen on 1 monitor and do my work i.e. Word, Photoshop, browsing in another. Works great for me.

    I should have clarified: I was referring to Apple's new implementation of Fullscreen where it creates an additional space and uses the whole thing up, greying out all the other monitors. Applications that don't use it are fine, but it makes QuickTime and iTunes completely unviable for full-screening a movie to a second monitor. If Apple's version of fullscreen starts to actually catch on, it will become a bigger problem.

    EDIT: Wait no, I did clarify in the original post. You just didn't read carefully. Not even the part you quoted it seems.

    Sorry I probably should have just not commented on what I know very little about. I'm just a 2 month newbie to Macs, yet alone the differences in various fullscreen implementations.

    My bad.

    No worries. I wrote the original thing assuming more familiarity with Lion's new features than I probably should have, especially considering it was supposed to inform readers about them and their shortcomings.

    Only thing I've noticed is that at start-up it's quite a lot slower than before (SL). In general I guess that it works a bit slower, but it's not a huge difference and you barely notice it. The big different is at start-up though and it annoys me, do you think a clean install would help on that?

    Have you tried disabling the feature that restores your open windows on login? I imagine that would be responsible for most of the increased startup time.
