Could be problematic for some if not many.

The ancient OS-X-native Internet Explorer 5.5 will no longer run, either


Oh no! :)

The only really issue I find with Lion is the download > install scheme. They should offer a download > disc image scheme I'd say. Other than that I understand they want to cut off all the old code. Most people that require things like Rosetta will most likely survive staying in MacOSX 10.6.

[Erik Lindahl] "They should offer a download > disc image scheme I'd say."

There's an image file hidden in the installer package. It can be restored onto a drive (or, I suppose, burned to an actual disc) at which point you have a bootable installer like you'd have had for any other version of OS X.

I have read the installer actually creates a mini emergency boot partition on your drive, from which you can reinstall the OS, if necessary. You can create a disc image of this partition on a DVD or USB drive, too. No copy protection.

Personally, I find it very satisfying not to have installation disk every time. I test the system since their developer release ver 3. As to FCS3 including third party components everything works fine. Though I would refrain to recommend use it in production yet. It's too early. BTW, yes indeed you have clean install version you can restore from. (If anybody could tell me how to turn off automatic proofreading in Safari 5.1 on mac os 10.7 I'd appreciate it. )

I thought Lion would require the system to have 10.6.8 installed, or is that old intel? If not, this system is fine / great.

Yes it's being installed from within 10.6.8. I didn't try "clean" installation from bootable disk/partition. I guess it's pretty easy - just make a proper copy of your Lion as you did with any other previous version of mac os.
