Lion OS is a disiater!
Oct 30, 2011

I recently made the mistake of upgrading to Lion. The download took an unreasonable amount of time 5 or 6 hours on our usually fast university server.

That was only the start of the problem. I then found that menus and requestors blacked out and my dock turning an ugly red background, especially on my second display.

Then, using Lightroom, my main tool for photo processing, became impossible because any image I tried to process on my NEC 2690 WUXi turned an ugly, overly black as soon as I made the first change in Develop. Exactly the same crap using two different MacBook pros, despite everything I have tried with Preferences on the Mac and everything I can think of in LR and the display...both of which continue to work perfectly under windows 7 on the PC.

I am seriously considering of finally giving up on Apple. Between the absurd overpricing of what amounts to a sexy packaging of standard components others sell for much less and the endless problems I had with my previous MacBook Pro

(3 graphics board and two motherboard replacements, etc) and the arrogant monopolistic practices of Apple with warranties, etc., , I have had enough!

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.
