AirPlay Mirroring... IF it doesn't get blocked by sites like Hulu (free)...

@Serenity Caldwell:

According to OWC & Diglloyd, In Lion Mac Pro can only take up to 96Gb of RAM, while in Snow Leopard it can utilize 128Gb.

Can you verify if it is the same case with Lion? Thanks.

Wish list: how about a pref to toggle "auto-save"?

I'm already not happy that RSS has been pulled out of Safari - it's in Mail, which sucks IMO as an RSS Reader - now I need two apps to read my RSS feeds, which will IMO lead to LOTS of notifications in Notification Center. I'm using Herald right now for Mail notifications and it's just going ape**** right now (annoying). The changes read evolutionary, not revolutionary. Apple's servers are slammed, I can't test out the Dev Preview for now. Safari's search-in-the-address bar addition is what Chrome's had for months, so that's a yawner. I'm not impressed so far, but it's only day one for Catamount...

Better searches in iCal/Calendar sound great!

They got rid of to-do in mail. I'm still mad about that.

I'd be excited if they fixed mail and the "mail forgot password" problem that I encounter 2-3 times a week.

Pulling RSS out of Safari will force me to start using a dedicated RSS reader again. Forcing me to use another app is a pain.

Catamount, you say? A Mountain Lion does have a lot of aliases. Cougar, Panther and Puma all come to mind. Two of those names have already been used. Lynx and Bobcat are not doing it for me.

I'm still waiting on Ocelot. I'm sure Ubuntu wouldn't mind. Napoleon Dynamite fans will want an OS X Liger.

I hate hate hate and hate the changes in Safari.

I'm still not a fan of unified search / URL bars, but that's just me. However, removing RSS is super annoying as Mail is not a solution.

Also, they've removed options to change the default font size for web pages which means I can't really use safari the same way any more…..

The ONLY feature I'm really looking for is 'disable auto-save'
Not having a 'don't save prompt' is still, after all these months, wreaking havoc with my workflow.
Sadly, it doesn't seem that's going to happen.

Fortunately, developers outside of Apple seem to recognize the current implementation sucks and are in no rush to support it.

Yes but they have taken it out and made it in to a new app called reminders so you will still get your todos

The sad news is that it only works on second-generation icore CPUs.
