Apple is not a company that revels in legacy technology, that includes Snow Leopard which will assuredly become unsupported soon. The answer is becoming more clear: if you don't want to use Lion you don't want to use a Mac. Either accept it or find a new platform. I'm growing tired of people stalling in 10.6 and complaining of features or actions they can't have/do, using a brand that is always looking ahead.
You do realize, though, that for the people who aren't able to upgrade to Lion for process reasons also aren't likely to be able to migrate to another platform? Those people are stuck, probably for good, because if a modern replacement for their critical process hasn't shown up in the last 6 years it's probably too much to hope that one ever will.
My 24"iMac is great. Works great, really haven't had a problem. But as you mentioned Bastion, some will not be able to go any further than what I have now. I bought my iMac and the END of '06 dec 28. (5.5years), I didn't think I had it that long. Its the "Intel Core 2 Duo" processor.
So unless I chuck my iMac, and buy a brand new model, I cannot upgrade. Even the MM to iCloud, is screwed. I did the (improvement) for iCal that worked, Mail is OK, Address/Contacts is loaded but obviously doesn't sync.
And because they can "Push" the iCal, then I feel if they wanted they could do a little more. Anyway.
Now thats without everything I have just works. But the new stuff, my computers are graveyard material.
And because I'm one of those guys that doesn't have to have the newest, I guess I have more than one foot in the grave.
So Respectfully, to those you rightfully mentioned, its not about complaining. Heck I've been a .mac/mm user since 2005, and the new stuff for Lion looks like what I had to SL.
A few code tweeks, and we're done.
And look how I can even use my old iMac on MW.
OS SL 10.6.8,
the iCal (good hack) 4.0.4
