O Lion, How I love thee

Recommended Posts

I bought an iMac in early spring of 2011, which came with Snow Leopard 10.6.7, my 1st official mac ever.

But when I upgraded to Lion a few months later, I noticed a couple things.

Boot time was significantly increased and there were graphics glitches every now and then, (like when I would drag and drop and icon to the desktop for instance the screen would Glitch like an old atari game or something. . .)

So I'm back to Snow Leopard for the time being, that is if anyone got any ideas to throw out there.

 

Now, I don't really care for the lofty apple forums, so I thought I'd post here with my fellow hacksters.

 

Specs are:

 

Processor

2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with 6MB on-chip shared L3 cache

 

Memory

4GB (two 2GB) of 1333MHz DDR3 memory

 

Graphics:

AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor with 512MB of GDDR5 memory

 

Wi-Fi

802.11n Wi-Fi wireless networking;2 IEEE 802.11a/b/g compatible

 

Bluetooth

Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) wireless technology

 

I just use iStat for monitoring purposes

 

cheers!

Wait for Mountain Lion and see how that is. Seems like a glitch that Apple needs to fix and either release on a new Lion update or include in Mountain Lion.

I hope you know what those glitches are. I challenge you to mention a couple of glitches or are those glitches are actually software bugs?

They were mostly graphics glitches, the screen would often flash like an old Atari screen which it never did it in Snow Leopard, only in Lion and its subsequent updates, I got sick of it so I went back to Snow. But now that Mountain Lion is out, I see no glitches and an over all snappier system, which is what I thought Lion would've been like.
