    Joel Bock - I get the spinning rainbow randomly while typing now. Various programs stall. Calendar doesn't sync with google apps via exchange channels. Just to name a couple.

    Thomas Magee - Been on it since day two. Solid for me. Almost zero weirdness. Definitely not more beach ball of death than before. Did you do an upgrade or a clean install? I think, (opinion time) that if your machine was more than a year old, then a clean install would be pretty important. My Mac was only about 7 months old and does not have a lot of apps on it so the upgrade seems to have gone well. Even though, I occasionally think about the value of a clean install at some point.

    Joel Bock - Yeah, it was an upgrade. That's probably what is going on.

    Thomas Magee - If you need, I can get you the instructions on how to create an install disk on a USB Drive. You don't have to buy the $69 one from Apple.

    Joel Bock - Clean install is doing much better now…and now it's reinstalling all the software…

    C. Wess Daniels - I should try a clean install. Joel, was it hard to figure out how to do that?

    Joel Bock - Here are two links that are helpful. One that tells you how to create it BEFORE installing, and another that shows you the re-download method.

    Tim Porter - Joel, probably too late now, but I noticed that when you install Lion, Spotlight has to re-index everything, and Spotlight is a glutton so your machine will run slower (and hotter) until it finishes.
