And LION!

 

Apples servers are crawling, but I'm downloading as we speak!

I'm a little worried about downloading Lion just yet at least to my desktop. I know Quicken will no longer be supported on Mac with Lion, and then of course the unknowns right now with all my Photoshop and Aperture plug-ins

An interesting feature of the new Macs:

 

Newly-introduced Macs -- namely Mac minis and MacBook Airs introduced today -- have a new feature called "Internet Recovery" that downloads and installs OS X Lion even if your Mac has a failed or blank hard drive.

 

Much of the concern around Lion being download-only (though it will be available via USB key) was how to do a clean install after a hard drive replacement, for instance. For new Macs, it sounds like it will be very easy.

They will also have it available via a USB drive.

 

Wonder if that is included with the MacBook Air purchases.

That is why I have many partitions on my computers :)

Could be unrelated, but the three imap inboxes I used were wiped clean within an hour of upgrading to Lion. All other folders are intact, and I can't find the missing messages locally using search.

Though I said I wouldn't, of course I did install Lion on my laptop. First thoughts...noticeably faster.

Now I have to work out how to do the partition thing on my desktop to keep Leopard where I need it.
