I actually find Lion running much smoother, quicker and better than Snow Leopard on my iMac.

Only thing I miss is the old spaces. But probaly just till I get used to the new :-)


NO BUGS sofar

Forgot.

Downloaded Lion in 20 minutes... So gotta ask 20 Hours ? Do you have an old 56kb connection ?

Install took another 20 minutes.

I did answer the question.


No, sorry he deserved it.

Have we really become as lazy as to not google for 3 letter acronym we don't know about?

Since when has it become an insulting to point this out?


What ?!!?  Where did you "answer" the question ?  You gave him a link to six and a half MILLION results!!

And how on earth did he manage to deserve being insulted ?  I've re-read the thread and no-where was he deserving of anything, he merely stated he had no idea what NIH meant ... most normal people who know a factoid others don't are more than happy to enlighten .. looks like you're just a muppet who likes to think he is better than others.

Sorry, but I'm adding you to my list of things to smite when I become omnipotent ... you're just after mosquitos....

*Amiga* dot org right?
Its funny I dont seem to recall OSX being amiga related.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

I used to moan about that too but have come to realise you cant have it all your own way (as much as I try)... ;)

More often than not I'll leave these sorts of things alone as there's a tenuous link between amiga and Macs/pcs/etc sometimes, but occassionally, like this thread and iPad threads I just dont get why it's here. In no way, shape or form related, its just flat-out OSX talk.
Any good Apple forums I can go and ask amiga questions please someone ?

While I can see why some folk like to ask questions here to fellow Amiga users about other systems they own or use, I agree that it really has no place here on an "Amiga" site when it's not even slightly Amiga related... :)

I basically noticed a rather smart arse comment made by Piru and decided to comment on that then I somehow got onto the subject of HDs (which are Amiga related) and ended up babbling about that... :)

But when all's said and done whether you and I don't agree to such threads being here, at the end of day we're still free to comment on it and make our feelings known on the matter, so it kinda balances itself out in the end I suppose... :)

I guess the best way to view these threads is that these are all Amigans looking for help from or talk about other things with people they know.  Asking these things on an Apple specific forum and you'll get views from people who aren’t grounded in the Amiga; there is no commonality.

The people who post in "OTHER OPERATING SYSTEMS" here are looking for responses from people they have grown to trust or at least understand their view points.

Just think of A.ORG as the Amiga Pub of the innerwebz. ;)  People float from one table to another to talk about different topics but ultimately are all her for the same reason, whether they are talking about it right now or not... :D
 
Oh, and if you don't care about what is being said at one table at this time, you can always meander to another one or start up your own. ;)

Tested on Generation 2 MBA (Late 2010) and 2006 Mac Pro. Works fine. Seems to work like Snow Leopard did just with the new gestures etc. I did assign the F5 key I think it was to Launchpad as not having a button for it was pointless.

I am slowly getting used to the new gestures, I bought a trackpad for the Mac Pro, though there is one thing I don't like. Dashboard! I prefer how it come over the screen and was translucent. I use the calculator a lot and I often have numbers on the browser that I wish to refer to when using the calculator. Having to flick back and forth is annoying. I could probably find an app to do it but dashboard was perfect.

Oh well, can't win them all!

Of which the 2nd is the obviously correct term. Surely we're not talking about National Institutes of Health...

For being lazy and not googling for it. Also, the "insulting" part is your invention. I don't find lmgtfy insulting at all.

As for your opinion of me, I don't give a damn really.

@nicholas:

What has the National Institute of Health got to do with the topic in question?

This is the "other operating systems" subforum and considering the high number of mac users on this site, it's totally appropriate.
