If you rely on AW all the time, I suppose. But if you you rely on MobileMe features like bookmark, iCal and email syncing, for example, you're going to need to switch to iCloud before the end of June, and you need Lion to get iCloud. So I guess it all depends on what you need the most.

I won't be forced. If Lion is not prime time ready, and it isn't now, I'll find other alternaties.

This our way or the highway stuff doesn't mean I can't find another highway. Lion blew heavy chunks so I will not be trying it again for some time.

How the hell does that work?

Apple controls the hardware that goes into their machines. Backtracking on a few systems like that purely because you don't feel like porting the drivers for the hardware you chose to use is downright lazy.

This, coupled with the announcement that they're moving to a yearly OS X release cycle is beyond absurd. I would say something like "they need to slow down", but moving slow doesn't drive sales. I can't wait until we've got truckloads of Mac systems being dumped for next to nothing on the internet because the latest greatest OS is required for whatever stupid API changes they decided to include, and that hardware won't run the latest OS because Apple doesn't feel like dealing with hardware they chose to manufacture.

Sorry, but when you're selling a hardware platform coupled with software, there is zero excuse for simply dropping perfectly viable machines on the floor and walking away. I'm not saying that they should support stuff forever, just that perfectly valid machines should not be left behind because of 32-bit drivers- something that users were told you'd never have to worry about on OS X.
It's hopefully more than Apple just being Lazy about writing 64-Bit Drivers for the GMA950. They already have them for Lion, no? 64-Bit Finder runs on Core2Duos.

I'm sure time will tell, but apparently Mountain Lion also installed on some late-2006 iMacs with the X1600 ATI Card, that aren't "officially supported".

I'm not sure it's just a driver issue though, it could be a video card power issue. Mountain Lion could come with some Graphical Trickery (OpenCL?) that the GMA cards don't play well with?

But why not support a MacPro1,1 or 2,1 if it was a video card issue. Just just support the crappy old cards. I'm running a current ATI Radeon 5770.

Heck the virtual machine in parallels running 10.8 has 4GB or ram, and 256MB for video. Haven't done much but it runs fine.
