    This is NOT an April Fool's joke. I got an invite, I DL'd the OS through the app store, and it's on an external HD right now. If you think it's a joke, I guess the joke's on you.

    As to Kesha, I have heard the name. Just wouldn't know her if she sang in my ear or appeared in front of me.

    I'm not sure how knowledgable you have to be. I guess enough to understand you shouldn't install it over your actual OS, but should experiment with it on a partition. If you can do that, then I guess you are knowledgeable enough. It looks nice, installed easily, you can import your stuff into it, but I don't know if it's the GM or just a WIP. I read they're pushing the due date back a few months, so probably NOT the GM. However, if they have "ordinary" people trying it out, it should be close.

    As to torrent copies, I would NEVER put a torrented OS on any of my systems. That just seems to be asking for trouble.

    jealous. Hope it doesn't change too many things, though... I just got used to Mac, transferring from Windows®...

    Depending on how you use it, pretty much the same.

    Nice. My Dock won't Genie, though yours seems to. I filed a bug report.

    I have a paid dev but still haven't participated on the new Lion. Pretty interest in how they decided who was getting the preview.

    So far the only two things I've noticed on mine is that when you start up, the status bar at the top is blacked out for a few seconds, then kicks in. The other thing is I can't log into Skype. It stays stuck on the "signing in" screen but never logs in. Aside from that everything is running smooth (so far).


    EDIT: There's been a workaround for that Skype/FaceTime issue, found it via google.

    I also notice at times windows/status bars temporarily go black, as do the Dashboard widgets.

    This is looking like its shaping up to be a very good OS from what I have seen. Can't wait for the final release.
