I realize this has been asked before but with Lion's offical release today does anybody have any info on the functionality of Final Cut Studio 2 with Lion? The reason I'm so concerned is that my copy is from an education license from my college but I do no have access to the disks any longer. Any brave souls try this yet?

Getting a new OS is the least of your worries. You need to make a clone of your current System Drive RIGHT NOW. You're tempting fate as it is. Carbon Copy Cloner is your friend.

Why would you bother?

I've read that FCS2 should run fine under Lion. The key is you have to have it installed BEFORE you upgrade. Apparently FCS uses some installer called Rosetta that won't work with Lion, but if FCS is already installed on the hard drive when you upgrade then there's no need to run the installation package with Rosetta.

I'm hoping this is true because I run FCS2 as well. I'm going to wait on Lion for a few months anyway til most of the bugs get worked out. By then we should know if FCS2 works with Lion or not.
