You can still do it from the finder. Looks like they might eventually be planning to phase it out in the future. Cmd-click is useful in spotlight.
Thats not my case, I run Lion and Get Info is still fully functional in spotlight search results...

That's what I do.
Does that still work with Lion?

..........everytime I'm ready to make the jump to Lion with my next Mac purchase looking at a MacBookAir right now, I come a cross a thread like that which makes me nervous about moving to Lion.

I feel Apple is loosing it's touch when it comes to user interface and usability with their new releases of Mac software. That used to be one of their strong points.

Yes it does. In fact the searching is even better, as you can specify multiple parameters from within the finder search box (though my memory on SL is getting a little foggy).

Even better is the search within Mail. Despite the complaints about Lion, the improved searching within Mail trumps the negatives (for me, at least).
