  1. Yikes, I hope it’s better than the dysfunctional dross that sits on my MacBookPro.

    Slow and porky iPhoto, desperately buggy TextEdit, functions requiring multi-key access where one used to suffice – etc.

    Ugh – never thought I might be looking at the Dark Side…

    1. Take another look before you seriously consider leaping. Going to Windows – especially going back to Windows – is not something to consider lightly, even in jest.

    1. Snow Leopard was a buggy PoS sorry, fine with a single user but as soon as it was bound to a Domain, lotsa stuff broken.
      Lion is a lot less broken and I’m admining about 500 SL machines. 🙂

  2. In my estimation, Snow Leopard is a 100. Lion is, at best, an 80. But never forget, DJ . . . Windows ANYTHING is a 50.

    Think before you click–AND–before you revert to an antiquated, bullet-ridden, butt ugly OS.
