I'm holding off on upgrading to Lion at least for a bit, only because I've seen that one critical app for me does not yet have a full green light on this Lion Apps Compatibility List.

The one app is Parallels Desktop 6.

Anyway, thought it might be useful to discuss which apps have issues with Lion, which ones don't work at all, etc.

I saw that Adobe CS4 has "issues". That's a big one for me. Then again, I've been running Lion and never noticed any issue with CS4. It's not my main rig, so it's entirely possible there were problems I didn't notice.

The only real problem i've come across so far is my eSATA card's drivers are not compatible... so I have to switch my external hard drives to USB until I can find compatible one.

I have seen no issues with CS4 on my Mac since I installed Lion

The only app that I have seen any issues with it was MagicPrefs. With MagicPrefs on there is some lag when swiping between desktops occasionally. Sometimes it freezes in between 2 desktops, and I have to swipe a couple times to make it move.

But problem resolved when I turn it off, really MagicPrefs is not necessary anymore with all the new gestures in Lion!
