    Except this one is priced at a whole $29.99. :D

    Tom (... cheap at twice the price.)
    $30 wow thats cheap.

    question!! are the downloads, upgrades or full blown new operating systems? if upgrades are they like the windows upgrades that leave lots of the old OS in place?
    i always do a clean install rather than an upgrade as i dont want any of the old OS in a new build

    Prior to this upgrade, you could do it pretty much any way you wanted. Upgrade install, clean install, whatever. Since this one is coming over the wire rather than on physical media, I'm not sure how it's going to operate. Apple has announced this morning that if you want the upgrade on physical media, it'll be available in the Apple store in August on a USB stick for $69.99.

    Once my download finishes, I'll let you know what options are available.

    Well... I'm now aboard Lion! :D

    Upgrade went perfectly. No problems at all. Although I didn't have any option this time on the type of install I wanted to do. Just had to let it do it's thing. All seems to have worked just fine however.

    Now, I've just got to get used to some new stuff...

    Interesting...

    I should have done the same. It appears that I've now lost that option. The Lion installer is no more once the upgrade is complete. Or so it appear.

    yeah once installed it deletes the install file but of course it's freely downloadable again (just takes time!)

    Downloadable how? Through the app store? I haven't found how to do that yet. Course, I haven't looked either.
