Well, I think it's no secret that I have a passion for all things tech and especially mac. And today, is a happy day. The Apple Store released OS X Lion today, available for download from the Mac App Store.
My primal instinct (pun intended) was to immediately open the App Store to download and install. Fighting that urge, I first opened my browser and did a quick search on if I should upgrade now or wait. There were a couple of interesting articles:
Lifehacker: Should I Uprade to OS X Lion?
NY Times: The Usual Apple Upgrade, Big Steps Forward a Stumble Backwards
Which led me to a website to check if all the programs I currently use will be compatible right away. This is when I started to have my doubts about upgrading today. A few of the programs I use quite a bit (Microsoft Office, Reeder) have some issues or are not compatible yet. This is no-bueno when I'm on a strict deadline right now to get my global learning project website up and fully running by Sunday.
Lion, you may be king of the animals, but if I can't rely on the fact that I can do the same thing post-upgrade as I can right now, I'm going to have to wait. It pains me to say this but you, Lion, are just a cub right now.
I'm going to give you a little time to mature before I invest my $30. Hopefully by the time my website is done you'll be an upgrade older. And I'll be able to enjoy not only a month off of school but a lot more time to play with you and become friends.
