    you can't skip snow leopard, you have to have 10.6.7 to upgrade (as it's through the mac app store).

    although saying that i'm sure there's a torrent up already.


    and yes typo i get scared, i have 3 back up drives!

    Also, if you are planning to upgrade heres a nice guide to make sure it all goes smoothly:

    Upgrade to OSX Lion

    It's really easy...no guide needed. All working fine thanks.

    I'm sure Windows upgrades are just as easy....

    What are the major upgrades with Lion? And now that they've used the King of the Jungle, will they move on from cats? I may wait for Mac OS 10.8 Cyote, lol.

  18. I was tempted to upgrade, but then I saw that i'd have to upgrade to Snow Leopard first. Then I saw this. If i do upgrade some of my shiny new CS5 kit that i'm currently learning will all go tits up, and even though it's only, what, about 18 months old, Adobe won't be making any updates to make it compatible.:mad:
