    Time of download about 1 and half hour and I love it. Well worth the money and time. Total app is about 3.5 GB. Simple process as you choose the Lion App from your I Mac App and go..
    I highly recommend it.

    Waiting for that “Next Thing” means you’d never buy anything.

    Quite a few articles on the Macworld site regarding lion installation if you have any worries.

    Under £20 for an os upgrade is remarkable and after 18 months of the iPad, buying and installing programs from the app store seems so normal and easy.

    Personally I never bothered about checking my installed programs. Just saw it was released and installed it straight away. Very pleased with the upgrade as I'm a fan of full screen working and the three finger flip makes moving around very slick.

    Launchpad I'm a bit ambivalent with, but I've copied the iPad and dragged most of my programs into folders only leaving the regularly used ones on top, so it's reduced to the one screen. Widgets have been condemned to oblivion.....

    One useful tip is the All Files heading in finder. Set your preference to two or three days and you can always find what you've been working on recently.

    It's a very nice upgrade in my book and iCloud turning up soon will be a great bonus.
