I’d been messing around with Mac OS X Lion, and I’ve to say that I’m very disappointing of this newer version of Mac OS X. Just in the last two days, my MacBook Pro got crashed four times or so. Last three times I’d to deal with MacBook Pro’s monitor turned black which consequently rendered the keyboard unresponsive. I’d to power off through the physical power button on the MacBook Pro itself, and I figured if I keep on doing this, I’ll eventually allow my MacBook Pro’s hardware go bad. This was why I’d installed Snow Leopard onto a newer partition which I’d resized specifically for it, and now I have dual boot option where I could boot into Lion whenever I want to play with it. Nonetheless, I’m going to stick with Snow Leopard for now since Snow Leopard is bug free, and so far my system hums happily with Snow Leopard, without any trouble at all! Snow Leopard is rock solid! Lion will be as stable as Snow Leopard someday, but not today, this week, and this month I guess — unless Apple is going to look into Lion’s bugs evermore intensive and come out with fixes soon, and I mean really soon!
Let say, I’d done everything in trying to have Mac OS X Lion works the right way, but I failed terribly! First, I’d done a hardware test, because my MacBook Pro crashed and monitor turned black. Fortunately, the result of the hardware test came back and told me that my hardware are working perfectly — meaning everything is OK! Breathed easier, I decided that the culprit of trashing my MacBook Pro had to be Mac OS X Lion. So there is my answer! I think earlier adopters of newer operating systems as me are suckers for suffering from the madness of having to fight against the operating systems just to be happy!
Out of frustration comes resolutions, and out of resolutions comes awesomeness — I’d uploaded two videos to YouTube that talk about dual boot Mac into Snow Leopard and Lion but yet users are going to be able to transfer information from Lion to Snow Leopard. This way, Mac users won’t have to lose their data. Nonetheless, make sure you back up your data anyway before you even try the dual boot method and transfer information, because you never know your system might act wonky at times and render the methods I’m talking of useless! Check out the videos right after the break!
