I’ve put this off for ages, but tonight I am upgrading to OS X Lion. After the mess that Snow Leopard made of my friend’s computer and learning that some of my apps won’t run on Lion, I’ve been gun shy about taking the leap. But a bunch of apps I use are now upgraded to Lion-only. It took me ages to move to Leopard because I didn’t want to lose my Classic apps, but it didn’t take long for me to completely forget what those apps were.
Before I can upgrade to Lion, I have to move to Snow Leopard. I find that slightly ridiculous, but it’s still much cheaper than moving from one one version of Windows to another. I only say this because there is a good chance that I will need to get a copy of Windows installed on my computer and the cost of a license is making me blanch!
I’m pretty sure I’m going to need to upgrade to the latest version of iWork, too. I thought I had the latest version of iLife, but they just moved to a version 11, darn it, so that might be another hidden expense of moving to Lion. I am hoping that I won’t need to get the latest Microsoft office suite because that costs a crazy amount of money. I’d been running the 2004 version until my last software update when it just went buggy. I haven’t missed it at all, happily typing in Pages and then exporting.
Well, I’d better snap to it. Snow Leopard alone could take four hours to install!Share on Facebook
