    "Lion sucks!!!"

    January 15, 2012  |   By lawrencemorton


    The pros of this operating system revision are: NONE!


    This "update" is clearly a step behind and only brings more problems than it solves.


    I highly recommend to those considering this upgrade to stop now, enjoy the version you have, and stay away from Lion as far as you can. It is a complete can of worms and the benefits are hardly, if possible, to find anywhere. In fact, can anyone name a single benefit of this operating system upgrade? I've yet to find a single one...

    Lion does multiple desktops very well, and full-screen mode. But as a development machine it is terrible; they swapped out gcc for some semi-proprietary compiler which failed for many installs, made postgresSQL the default database which isn't so bad but there are configuration issues. It's been awhile so I can't remember the other reasons I decided to never use Lion again, but they're out there.
