On another note, has anyone who's gotten a promo code, downloaded the installer and extracted the install package to disk/USB/external yet and tried it on another machine? I've read some support documents that indicate the the promo code version is single use only (as opposed to the paid download which you can use on all your machines) and only for the machine the promo was granted for... I'm guessing this is just EULA, not written into the installer, but am interested to hear anyones experiences.

I had to buy another copy for work, so I am using that. I did make a bootable dvd that worked no problem. I can't see the download promo code version being any different, it looks the same with the exact same package contents. I see no reason why they would treat it any different.

I liked the feature where I could open up "text edit" and creating a few notes, then closing the program and not having to save them.

That feature is gone ever since I updated. Do you know how to get that feature back?

So far everything sounds positive, and I am looking forward to it as I skipped Lion altogether,
Any prepress/Graphics people upgrade yet? My questions are always Font Management and printer issues, etc...

That's good, sounds like it's just EULA then. I applied for my MacBook Air promo code yesterday morning, and my iMac promo code yesterday evening. If I get the Air one first (?) I'm hoping to just make the install drive and install both at the same time and just redeem the iMac one when it's received.

Go into System Preferences and make sure this is unchecked.

I'm hearing positive things from print/web guys already, seems many are jumping in quickly. Maybe this weekend I'll give it a go.

If your using CS6 and any of the latest MBP's including RMBP, there is frequent crashing issues with Indesign whenever a warning dialogue pops up. There are a few fix solutions, but nothing from Adobe, just work arounds.

I was going to skip Lion, I still prefer SL over it, but with a new RMBP I had no option. Our Xerox DC260 runs fine, no driver issues there. In the past, both Lion and Snow Leopard required new drivers for them, so it was nice to see it works without updating. Going to give Mountain Lion a try tonight, as there are some improvements I am looking forward to over Lion, but have my backup ready incase I need to go back.

Well after previously stating I'll never upgrade from Snow Leopard, I did it, just installed Mountain Lion.

Should be interesting....
