This may seem like a silly question, but I haven't seen any mention of it, if it is around I apologize. For those of us with Boot Camp partitions; if we install 10.7 will it erase the partition or will it give us an option to install over just the 10.6 partition?
It won't erase that partition, provided you created the Boot Camp partition using Boot Camp Assistant and you haven't further modified your drive's partition map afterwards.

I'm running Snow Leopard ( all up to date), i've downloaded Lion, and it's ready to install, my question is this.
Can i leave everything on my Mac were they are, documents, photo's, music etc or do i need to save every thing to a external disc. i'm running time machine (of course)
And will i need to reinstall all my apps???
If you simply install over Snow Leopard, everything will be exactly where you left it. That said, as mentioned in the article, you should always have a tested backup before installing an OS update.

In previous versions of Mac OS X you were allowed to choose via a "Customize" dialog during the installation process which languages and printer drivers you wanted installed with the OS. Is this option no longer available in Lion, i.e. is it an "all or nothing" approach?
As noted in the article, you no longer get these options.

From a CNN article here:
it states near the end:
"Mac OS X Lion is available as a $29.99 upgrade for people with the latest version of the Snow Leopard operating system. It will be available at Apple Stores in August for $69.99."
I wonder if this is true about retail purchases or if they just got it wrong?
As noted in our article, Apple will sell, starting sometime in August, a $69 bootable Lion-installer USB stick.
