OS X Lion overview

Apple OS X Lion is built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation, engineered to take full advantage of the technologies in every new Mac, and designed to deliver the most intuitive and integrated computer experience possible.

Hardware and software made for each other. Since the software on every Mac is created by the same company that makes the Mac, you get a fully integrated system in which everything works together perfectly. OS X works with the processor architecture in your Mac to deliver the best possible performance. Mac notebooks include a Multi-Touch trackpad that lets you pinch, swipe, and tap your way through every app on the system. OS X gives you long battery life by dimming the screen in low-light conditions and even regulating processor activity between keystrokes.

Easy to use and incredibly powerful. From the desktop, you see when you start up your Mac to the applications you use every day, everything is designed with simplicity and elegance in mind. So getting things done is both intuitive and fun. Of course, making amazing things simple takes seriously advanced technologies, and OS X is loaded with them. Not only is it built on a rock-solid, time-tested UNIX foundation that provides unparalleled stability, it also delivers incredible performance, stunning graphics, and industry-leading support for Internet standards.

Secure by design. OS X doesn't get PC viruses. And with virtually no effort on your part, the operating system protects itself from other malicious applications. Because every Mac ships with a secure configuration, you don't have to worry about changing complex settings in order to stay safe. Even better, OS X won't slow you down with constant security alerts and sweeps. Apple responds quickly to online threats and automatically delivers security updates. And with FileVault 2 in OS X Lion, all the data on your Mac is protected by powerful encryption.

Built for compatibility. The versatility and power of OS X help a Mac fit in just about anywhere--including Windows networks. Want to transfer your files, photos, and other data from a Windows PC? OS X lets you do that easily. If you want to run Windows on your Mac, you can do that, too. OS X has built-in support for the latest version of Microsoft Exchange Server, so you can use your Mac at home and at work and keep all your messages, meetings, and contacts in one place. OS X works with virtually all of today's digital cameras, printers, and other peripherals without the need to manually download separate drivers. And it opens popular file types such as JPG, MP3, and PDF, as well as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.

Accessible innovation. OS X comes standard with a wide range of assistive technologies that help people with disabilities experience what the Mac has to offer, including many features you won't find in other operating systems

"According to Web metrics firm Net Applications, Snow Leopard accounted for 27% of all copies of OS X used to access the Internet in March. The 2009 operating system has resisted retirement, and in fact powered more Macs last month than OS X Lion, its 2011 successor." http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9236569/OS_X_Snow_Leopard_stubbornly_rejects_retirement What does this fact say about the quality of Lion? I finally downgraded to Snow Leopard. Had to replace or abandon only 2 of my carefully selected apps that I had upgraded to full Lion compatibility. All serious stability issues disappeared, indicating it was not caused by hardware.

10.7.5 Combo updater has messed up up all 3 iMac 3.4GHZ i7 SSD 16GB Ram I upgraded from 10.7.4. -The worse nightmare of all: Spotlight has become DEAD slow to index main boot SSD with only 45gb used 203 free, it shows 3 days with 10.7.4 it was doing it in less than 10 minutes. I killed and relaunched spotlight, cleared old index, set only Boot drive marking all other drive including Timemachine with PRIVACY and tried most of the trick, same issue on the 3 computers I can't fix it. (Reset PRAM,Repair Perm run Diskwarrior, Reapplied 1075 combo) Therefore Timemachine is also now veryslow when Spotlight is trying to index the main drive (even after excluding all drive and timemachine via Privacy) - In the dock all shortcuts for folders and file from my NAS are becoming faceless with a question mark after each restart. Clicking on them re-activate the icon until the next restart. (DiskStation DS212+ Synology connected via AFP), Synology might have to update their software, I guess. - Fast User Switching is activated by default top right of menu bar, it can be cleared via User& Group, clicking on Login Option and deslecting Show fast user switching menu.

Is it me or 10.7.5 did NOT deliver for us stuck on older hardware...Let me elaborate. First off Finder issues that have been plauging the system since 10.7.0 namely the inabilty to zoom list-view mode windows properly and "automatic" column sizing in double clicking the appropriate boundary between name and size columns for example are just to name few of the ones that stand out. These may be small nuisances at first glance, but things like these made OSX what it is today...elegance and attention to detail. Then there's the HUGE performance drop when it comes to GRAPHICS performance and specifically to openGL. I've tested this on 2 different systems separated by more than 5 years, a MacBookPro2,2 (C2D 2.33 15.4''), as well as an iMac11,1 (i5 4cores 2.66 27'') only to find out that both NovaBench and OpenGL extensions viewer yield substantially lower results in the graphics sector which is also apparent during the tests (i.e. lower fps counters and all)..I've not gone into extensive benchmarking using game's timedemos and all, but still this is indicative of the trend Apple's unfortunately chose to go towards... For the time being i feel let down by this.

This update broke my ProTools. Worked fine this morning, updated to 10.7.5 takes literally 10 minutes of beach ball hang to launch (when it actually does launch). Garbage. Will be downgrading tonight

Just like iPhoto it hangs towards the end of the installation. Only on this MacBook. The iMac and Mac Pro are always fine. If your laptop hangs with iPhoto installs, it will probably hang with the 10.7.4 combo installer too.

being a Mac user since 1993 and currently looking after 9 intel Mac's and my experience with Lion is as follows: It works reasonably well for hobby user who maybe sync there iPhone do a bit of web browsing and email and only have a dozen of programs installed and open at a time, for example my media center, or my wife's Mini makes very little trouble (though even that freezes occasionally and needs to be force restarted). However for Power user (Quad Intel 32 MB Ram, latest and biggest iMac 16GB ram etc) is is very, very buggy, slow and in my eyes the worst OS apple released in a long time. The spinning beach ball show up far to often and for far to long, machines in- explicitly restart itself, windows in the background are un-responsive until you actually click on the window bar. An yes I have apple support for all machines and used it extensively and there are also no known conflicting software I use. I switched several machines back to SL and they run smooth without any of the issues Lion has.

For anyone who uses quicktime player 7, did you noticed that after the 10.7.4 update that the loop and loop back and forth options stay greyed out even with content open? I have a qt 7 pro license, so I know it's not because of that..

The upgrade messed up my mail settings, reactivating mail settings I had put away, but after deactivating them again, things seem to be working okay. I didn't have any problems restarting, but I always repair permissions and check the drives integrity before I install an upgrade to the operating system.

Lion 7.4 re-hides my user Library, and replaces the glorious login screen image of mine (in my humble opinion) with the dirty industrial-grey linen backdrop. Please Apple, if we have the capacity to tweak our Macs, don't dumb them down or revert elegance to industrial linen!

I wonder why they have added version 5.1.6 from Safari into the upgrade when they release Safari 5.1.7 at the same time?
