I finally upgraded my work iMac to OS X Lion. Just a couple thoughts from using it today…
Natural scrolling was the first feature I turned off. Maybe I’m a curmudgeon to change, but I liked the way I was scrolling before. Left on, I’d probably get used to it, but then my brain would have to adjust every night when I go home to my as-of-yet-un-upgraded MacBook Pro. Womp womp.
Command + D no longer activates “Don’t save” in TextEdit when you close an unsaved document. I use TextEdit a lot to strip formatting from text before I bring it into another environment (eg. input text fields on a website or an Adium chat) so I like being able to jump in and out of new documents quickly. In Lion, Command + D sets your save location to the Desktop. Fortunately, I’m not the only one misses this shortcut, and someone figured out the Terminal commands to revert it back to the old behavior.
I see no use for Launchpad whatsoever. Am I missing something here? Lol what. Use Spotlight to launch your apps, kids.
A new feature of Lion that I do actually like is the list of recent files when you right-click on an app in the dock:
Doo doo doot, that’s all for now… :D
Update: One more annoying thing… key repeat, where for art thou?! I don’t want foreign characters, I want to trail my words like thissssssss. (Fix found, here)
