OS X 10.7.1
After I hastily, and it seems now unwisely, installed Lion on the very first day of availability I have had over 35 separate system freezes and crashes that have profoundly interrupted my productivity and caused me to rant and rave, and cuss and fuss at Apple (the company I have been rather fond of). 35 hard restarts later, I am concerned that recent success and focus may have changed Apple. Now with the first official upgrade to OS X 10.7.1 hope it will fully will restore my faith and productivity.
Before I pass judgement on the changes I will temporarily conclude this post and go do some research by spending some time figuring out what has changed and if my problem remains.
After three weeks of frustrations and over 35 crashes I am a little more hopeful in the fture of Apple’s Lion after the first upgrade.
I have been able to get a few posts done without annoying unexplainable crashes putting a halt to my work.
I am really not absolutely certain whether the problems myself and others experienced are completely fixed but so far (fingers crossed) something is obviously working better. I only wish that whatever it was that went bad had been caught prior to the release. Maybe this means that the public needs to be more of an integral part of the Beta product testing cycle prior to any major release.
It also undoubtably means that as serious professional users we should consider hesitating and thinking before mindlessly committing our mission critical work to the possible vulnerability of new unproven releases.
