With a faster tracking speed it's possible to use it with all screens. Apple's typical mouse acceleration helps a lot with this! And the gestures are great, fun to use actually

What kinda pics six_storm? Most Lion reviews have good example shots of the new features.
Anything. Just like seeing how other people use OS X.

Can't get the Lion Install to boot on my hackintosh, need to scour the forums to see why. Seems like a similar issue to what the 10.6.8 update was doing to my machine. I will mess with it and post back once I get it going (may be tomorrow, may be in a month lol).

Checking to see if my VMWare SL install will install Lion at least.

Still having issues with Lion on my hackintosh. May be a few weeks or months before I get a suitable update to help the installer boot.

The andromeda wallpaper is pretty nice, it loads by default after installing Lion.

Lion is working well for me, I think it could use a few patches, but it's not as bad as some are making it out to be (calling it Apple's Vista and stuff). It's running well on my C2D Macbook. My wife has the Sandy Bridge i7 MPB and I have yet to install it there.

Basically, I have a lower end laptop and a nice desktop and she's got the nice lappy. I don't mind, I like to tinker around and like the ability to swap out/add hardware as needed. You can't do that on Apple hardware really.
