Step-by-step how to install Mac OS X Lion Part.II

Mac OS X Lion
Some applications do not work perfectly under Leo: again, if you depend on some applications for your studies or your work, first check that they run properly under Leo. The site provides a Roaring Apps compatibility table that allows you to quickly know if an application is fully compatible, compatible with any concerns or incompatible with Leo. It is possible that some compatibility problems come not from the application of the system but do not hesitate to wait for 10.7.1 or 10.7.2 to avoid the initial teething problems.

In one case as in the other, know that for several weeks or a few months at least, MacGeneration list all applications updated to become compatible with Leo. Developers are our primary source of information, but feel free to contact us if your favorite application is compatible Lion. The installation process of Lion is more robust than other versions of Mac OS X. Examples include that of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard: Mac could refuse to start if certain applications were incompatible with Leopard installed. Since Snow Leopard, Apple puts the applications are incompatible with a newly installed system in a specific folder.

But one problem is soon reached; it is safer to make a backup before installing the Mac. Manual backup, clone (For example Carbon Copy Cloner) or Time Machine, the backup type will depend on your type of installation. If you install directly on top of Snow Leopard, Time Machine or a clone will suffice: if something goes wrong, you can quickly restore your machine to its previous state. If all goes well, your clone or your incremental backup Time Machine can be reused in Leo.
