After a week, I can't say that I'm a big fan of Apple's new "Lion" OS.
At least not yet.
So far for me it's been a buggy, slow, crash-prone pile of crap. But so many people are raving about it that I'm sure it's just some legacy stuff from four years ago that's lurking on my hard drive and causing problems. Doing a clean install tomorrow should fix things right up.
At least it had better.
Because I am sick to death of having to reboot a minimum of twice a day... and if I get one more "Application Not Responding" freeze I'm going to go all homicidal...
In the meanwhile I've got one last task left to do tonight before I wipe my hard drive. After that? Say good night, Gracie.
And now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to a Very Special Episode of...
... nah, that would be telling!
UPDATE! Wheee! In the 35 minutes it took me to complete my project, my MacBook froze twice, had to be rebooted once, and started sporting really odd behavior in the Finder with files popping up which could not be deleted unless I restarted it...
WHY THE #@$% NOT?!? IT'S NOT BEING USED... HELL, IT DOESN'T EVEN REALLY EXIST!!
I hope everything goes well tomorrow so I don't have to set my laptop on fire.

I’m curious to see if this helps you and if you like Lion better afterward. I’ve held off making the switch from Snow Leopard because of your issues. Keep us informed.
Holy crap – there is nothing more frustrating than a computer gone wonky!
Did you reboot already? Lots of people say that the Adobe suite isn’t ready for Lion. I installed Lion on an old machine just for playing around with it.
But it’s like the fanboy stage is wearing of a bit 🙁
My Lion settled down after I restored my last Snow Leopard installation from Time Machine. Cleaned out every old, unused application that I haven’t touched in months before reloading the Lion upgrade. I also reset the PRAM. It’s been happy since.
Good luck with your rebuild!
This is why I use a PC *ducks*
I’m guessing this post was done before you did the clean install of Lion. I bought a new hard drive and installed Lion to it. So far, CS3 installed without a hitch and most of my apps are working without nary a hiccup.
My migration to Snow Leopard took a year, but it worked well for me for about a year. I do have my older hard drive to boot back into for Snow Leopard in case I need something or realize I forgot to copy something over.
