    Wife said it took about an hour to complete on hers, but that may not be typical as our Comcast connection is usually pretty fast compared to the average (24-26mbps).

    Mine said it would take 5 hours .. So I stopped it and went to a friend's house who already had it downloaded, so we just used a jumpdrive lol. I wasn't about to wait 5 hours .. Apparently I have a slow internet connection (Suddenlink)

    My friend and I share the dev account used to download it. So this was the GM version I was trying to download .. But it was the same file size. Once I realized it was going to take that long to download, he said he had already downloaded it.

    haha you're lucky with 5 hours, try 4345 days 20 hours!!!! lol my work connection rocks too bad the Firewall gets in the way

    This is how bad the firewall kills it, I switched to Wifi, slower than ethernet right, 30 minutes and it's already at 500MB in 3 or 4 minutes. It took 1 hour to get 40MB on ethernet Ughhhh but it's only certain things that get blocked which is how I know it's the firewall not the connection.

    I'm at the 2 hour mark and about 75% complete with the download (2.8 GB down)...

    Will I deed to buy the upgrade for all of my Macs? Or will this work like other AppStore apps - buy once for the account? Does anyone know that answer yet?

    From what I read yesterday I believe (hopefully) you can use it for up to 5 computers. Sorry, don't have a link on hand. If someone else can chime in on this and confirm.

    Right, and if I remember correctly they said that in the Keynote as well .. That you only had to purchase it once for all of your personal computers.

    Here's the link from Apple's website about authorized computers . Scroll down to Electronic Distribution section:

    Apple - OS X Lion - Over 250 new features. Read about all of them.

    It's going to take a while to get used to the way scrolling works now on the computer... even though it's just like the iPhone & iPad now

    Great news... but even at $30 per computer, it would be a good deal...

    i started the download about 45 minutes ago and thus far its showing NO progress whatsoever. I have U-verse wifi through ATT and it gets pretty decent speeds so idk if its my connection or the server is so clogged at the moment? How are you guys seeing the time till completion and is anyone else having this problem? :\

    No issues for me. I expected the servers to be slammed today, but also heard that Apple "ramped up" for the demand.

    I would think that you could cancel the download and restart - but not 100% sure how that would work, especially today.

    It estimated my download to be about 5 hours and it actually tool about 2 hours 45 minutes or so... plus about 20-25 minutes for the actual install...

    My download wound up taking about 90 minutes. Installation - 30 minutes.

    First thing I did - change the direction of the scroll. LOL!

    I finally did that... Why the call their new version of scroll "Natural" is beyond me as using a scroll wheel on a mouse is bas-ackwards on their "Natural"...

    It's all about the perspective. The "conventional" scrolling is like moving the view window over the page/document. So, to read lower on the document, you scroll (move the "window") down. With this paradigm, the page/document is fixed in place and you are moving the view window.

    Apple's new scroll is more like moving the page/document around under the view window. In this paradigm, to read lower on the document, you scroll (move the page) up under the view window. Now it's the view window that's fixed in place and you are moving the page/document around under that view window.

    I guess it makes sense when you think about it... the strange thing is that is feels so natural on my iPhone, iPad or iPod, but still feels a little strange on my MacBook Pro...

    In the AppStore - click on the "Purchases" 'tab'... you'll get a window showing previous purchases, and the download in progress will have an indication of how much has downloaded.
