    I'd still wait just a bit…but I've gotten burned by OS X updates in the past. Granted, that was my fault for not waiting for Avid to certify it, and it broke nothing but Pro Tools.

    I'd still wait…give it a couple days and google "OS X Lion" with the names of the software you really need to run. Let the hardcore early adopters figure out if stuff works, 'cuz it takes forever to roll-back an update.

    It's always better to be on the safe side (I still have snow leo as my main boot) and yes, roll backs are a pain.

    I'm hoping nothing pops up in the final build.

    Avid are the only reason I won't but updating straight away, i'll give them a couple of weeks to sort themselves out with the update first before I even think about it.

    A little off topic, I'm not the most literate computer person in the world i can make it do what i want when i want and have enough knowledge to do what i need to do.
    My question is I'm currently running the latest version of Snow Leopard and will want to upgrade to Lion, but can i just download the Lion upgrade and click the installer and not have to have a clean install, because i have no way of backing up my current files. I just want to be able to do a straight swap of Snow Leopard to Lion and leave all my files exactly where they were applications/music/documents etc.
    Will i be able to do this?
