It happened, that when I upgraded to Lion, for some reason Preview stopped working. This was new to me - usually I don’t expect such behavior under Mac OS. Seems that lots of people had this, especially the ones that have upgraded MBP with SDD and having HDD at the place of Optical Drive. In this case you make SymLinks in your home directory pointing to HHD for Downloads (for Photos, Music, Movies or anything that you can afford to play from slow media and takes more space, which is expensive on SSD).
Today I have tried to connect to my company’s VPN. Few days ago I have already upgraded my Snow Leopard with Mac OSX Lion. When trying to start RSA SecurID to obtain my token, the application responded with: “Error loading the application. Contact your administrator.”
When trying to search for solution, I found this post in Apple support forums:
There some guy from RSA says that they know about the issue and are working to fix it for next version, which will be available in September.
Recently I have mentioned that my Mac is unusually busy, even when I am not compiling code, but just browsing of Internet or files. Running Activity Monitor - it was showing Finder on top, almost all the time consuming 100% of CPU. Event with 2 cores - Mac was struggling with some simple tasks.
I thought at this moment - I cannot believe I will have the same stupid stuff like on Windows, when there is some missing Network Resources.
If you are working for large international company, or just participate in projects that are executed by teams/people in different locations - it is likely that you have to work with WebEx. It runs quite soothly on Windows XP/Vista/7 under Firefox, Internet Explorer. But when you go to Mac - suddenly you stick with the message
“One moment please”
And this is the last and only thing that you see on you browser.
This is post for Mac fans - everyone else should leave know.
I used to love dark themes when working in Linux desktop. Even on Windows I used to set a dark theme, so that it doesn’t bother my eyes.
Something that I love for Gnome and Kde desktops is customization - you can make your UI look the way you want, the way you like it. Most of the time, I used to set my Linux desktop to look like Mac :-P, but this is something else to be discussed.
