New Lion, Dev Preview 3, Worst of the Lot
Category : Technology/LionDevPreview3.txt
Developer Preview 3 of Lion doesn't work on the Thunderbolt MacBook Pro. Fortunately I backed up all my Lion-related work before I did the Software Update. The MacBook Pro refuses to boot up after the update.
I dropped the Lion partition, re-created it, and then installed Developer Preview 3 from scratch. Again, the MBP hung on startup and I gave up at this point.
I do have Preview 3 running on an older iMac Core 2 Duo. But Safari keeps getting stuck when loading web pages.
I hate the look of Lion. Will this be Apple's Vista? That's a distinct possibility. Has Apple been hiring a lot of refugees from Microsoft? Use Lion and you'll feel that thought creeping up on you.
