Downloading so slowly. I get to be the guinea pig for Lion at my job, so that should make today a bit more fun (if it finishes by 5).

It's been in my pocket through 4 regenerations,
but it's still good.

I was all stoked to install it on a machine at work before I play around with my own Mac but then I realized that I have no idea how to buy it for the enterprise.

Guess I have to make some phone calls. How are other companies handling it?

Same (also Australia). It's taking a bit longer to try and process the purchase now but I'm hoping that's because the store is being slammed rather than it's going to error out again :|

Is there any reason I should worry about running Lion on my January 2008 white Macbook? There doesn't seem to be anything graphically intense but I'm still kind of worried.

No. It works just fine on my mid-2007 MacBook.

I got my redemption code for the free upgrade, and it took me straight to a download once I'd redeemed that code. Doesn't seem to be doing much, but hey, I'm patient.

After about 15 more tries it worked! Downloading now at ~100kb/sec, so around 12 hours

Anyone else experiencing this?

The Lion download is requiring me to enter my AppleID and password, but it's telling me they're incorrect. I reset the password, successfully logged in to both iTunes and purchased something, and also accessed account maintenance on Apple's site successfully. Back to the app store to get Lion? Password is wrong, you must reset. Apple!

EDIT: And then... on the fourth try, Jobs said, let there be Lion.

My up to date worked flawlessly, few seconds, and lion is sitting here happily downloading. Thought it was quite impressive.

Make sure you have the story name in there right?

I have a quick question about Lion. I know they removed the current samba program but did they replace it with something else in Lion? The only stuff on Google coming up are rumor sites from when the samba news first broke. Thanks

Until the App Store stops freaking out, I feel the need to ask a potentially stupid question; Will it allow me to straight up upgrade to Lion from SL without removing things like documents, installed non-Apple apps/settings etc.? This is my first upgrade and I want to be sure I won't lose anything important.

So, the download is 3.49 GB, but how big is the unpacked DMG? I thought all OS X releases required a dual-layer DVD for the physical copy.
