These may have been mentioned here before, but here are a bunch of really helpful articles about Lion, with all of the links in one post:

A wiki has been created where you can check if your applications are
Lion-compatible:
App Compatibility Table - RoaringApps

HOW TO: Do a Clean Install of OS X Lion
OS X Lion: How to Do a Clean Install

Review of Lion:
Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: the Ars Technica review

OS X Lion Survival Guide
The OS X Lion Survival Guide

This is a good article about the workings of Lion Recovery.
Hands on with Lion Recovery*( - Software )

"It turns out that when you install Lion, the installer creates an invisible, bootable, 650MB partition--a portion of a drive the operating system treats as a separate volume--on your startup drive called Recovery HD that includes a few essential utilities for fixing problems, restoring files, browsing the Web, and even reinstalling Lion."

"The idea behind recovery mode is that if you ever have problems with your Mac's startup volume, you can boot from Recovery HD and perform some basic troubleshooting procedures without the need for an OS X installation DVD..."

Thanks Randy. Handy links to copy and keep.

BTW, I already tested the clean install and the recovery methods. Pretty neat, but I advise users to make and keep a Lion boot disk or flash drive handy for those days when nothing goes right - like not being able to access your hard drive.

More really helpful articles:

A number of appearance and functional things in Lion are different than in Snow Leopard.* A few that may be especially disconcerting or confusing to those accustomed to earlier versions of OSX. Here is a list of them and how to revert if you need to:

Lion introduced a new feature called "auto-resume" where apps you close will reopen right where you left off. Many users find this feature annoying, and it's not obvious where and how to turn it off.

Here is how to turn off “auto-resume.”

Go into System Preferences and select the General tab. At the bottom of that preferences pane is a checkbox labeled "Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps." If you uncheck that, your apps will return to their old Snow Leopard behavior.
