Re: Disappointed with Avid MC 5.03

You're not being smart. Avid clearly and explicitly states what configurations and OS-es are qualified. With a major OS upgrade, like from Snow Leopard to Lion, you should not go for it if you have 'heavy' software like MC running on it. Especially not in the first week that the OS has been released.

MC 5.5 won't run on Lion either, by the way. Avid explicitly warns against it.

Avid have been and are testing Lion. They have been testing with pre-release versions. Bu they need to do their final testing with the release version of Lion, which they have had for just a week now. They need to test thoroughly in order to make sure that everyone knows it is safe to enter those waters.

Apparently, you feel things should just magically work out of the blue, based on nothing. It's hard for me to even type a serious answer to that attitude.

Current versions of MC don't run on Lion. Old versions (like 5.0) may never. Oftentimes, Avid will issue updates for older versions (quite recently, a few updates for 4.x were issued). However, based on past experiences, and the fact that there are currently issues with MC and Lion, I would not count on it.

So no one is forcing you to pay 149 bucks. Even if you do, it likely won't work on Lion. The 149 bucks do get you some minor additional features, though.

If you insist on staying with the latest OS, create two partitions, one to run Avid on, keeping it on a clean, stable, supported version; then on the other partition you can install anything at any time, with cool Mail and all.
