    Lion just went gold, released to devs. Mere mortals should get it within 2 weeks max I'd wager :)

    I'm just hoping they don't wait too long past that to release the new hardware. Looking forward to hopefully some new Airs, Minis and Mac Pros.

    Ron - what was that Lion compatibility website you mentioned?

    Dave,


    Roaring Apps is the site.


    Great site.

    Looked for CS4, but did not see it listed. However, it has

    been a few days so it may suddenly appear there.

    Thanks. Turns out my wife has CS5, which is mostly described as compatible. That's encouraging, but I'll have to wait see the official reviews.

    Dave,


    I am using CS5. It works perfectly.


    Hope you enjoy Lion, Dave.

    "We're gonna need a bigger boat!"


    I'm running out of drive space on my MBP. I think I need to upgrade the drive to install Lion. I'd really hoped to go SSD by now, but I think it's still too pricey. Maybe I'll add RAM to my wife's iMac and buy the new Office 11 at the same time and do a big upgrade weekend next month :)

    Looking forward to reviews. My Mac I can go willy-nilly with, since nothing important is done with it. But my wife's iMac is a work machine, so I have to be appropriately conservative in her upgrades.

    I didn't watch the video: the title was all I needed to know, "Preparing for John Siracusa's Review of OS X Lion" :) I'm trying to finish "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" before Siracusa gets his review out. Because that will be the next month's reading!



    Ron, if you're unfamiliar with him, Jon Siracusa has been writing OS X reviews for Ars Technica for the past decade and is known for his epic articles on the major releases (he said the current one would be 89 pages if printed). His Lion review will be the definitive article on the matter.

    Heya Dave!


    No, I got all that. Just thought the video was a bit over the top.

    I thought the video was funny and I didn't even know the joke! :D Since Apple has long since abandoned print manuals for their OS, I take it reading Siracusa's review would be the next best thing? ;)

    Pretty much. Let's put it this way, Siracusa has taken his shtick of being hyper critical so far that it's now a top rated podcast of the same name. He gets DOWN DOWN DOWN into the weeds on stuff, but he also captures the big picture well enough that if you just read the conclusions it's enough for most people. Here's Snow Leopard and Leopard: http://arstechnica.com/apple/reviews/2009/08/mac-os-x-10-6.ars http://arstechnica.com/apple/reviews/2007/10/mac-os-x-10-5.ars
