    So I upgraded to Lion
    But, being so new to Mac, I'm not sure what is better and what is not.

    I do think the old email appearance was better. I did like being able to see email being sent and received by that little progress bar.

    How does one uninstall Lion and go back to using the other OS?

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Format the hard drive and clean install the previous OS. OS's really aren't something that can be 'uninstalled'.

    Thanks Mike. I guess I'll just get used to the new Lion. Maybe eventually it'll turn into a Lamb!!!!

    BTW you can click one box and go back to the way Mail looked. In Preferences/Viewing. Click Use Classic Look at the top.

    Yep. But if you always want to go back, do a clean install with the SL disk. Sadly you can't do this with the new machines that ship with lion :/
