Or there is going to be an increase of people requesting the USB thumb drive version from Apple Stores.

I'm glad now that I did purchase that USB thumb drive copy.

Lion is still under my purchases for download. I always make discs of my software, even the download ones like Adobe CS. Find it much faster to install that way then go through the download again, especially with the larger ones like OS X and Adobe CS.

If there was something I'd bought from the Mac App Store that didn't appear in my list of purchases, I'd communicate with Apple first.

Lion is not re-downloadable from the Mac App Store even if it is in your Purchased list. Just throws an error.

When I downloaded Lion, I immediately made a duplicate before I made a USB stick to install Lion.

Today I happened to hit Launchpad by mistake, (I never use it) and lo and behold, there were both Lion and Mountain installers. If everyone did this, Apple pulling it would not be an issue.

If everyone kept their two installers, they'd lose 9GB of hard drive space. That matters to some.

It still is an issue for people who have hardware that cannot support 10.8 but can support Lion but who are still on SL.

True, but had they upgraded to Lion within the past year, they would not have the problem, would they? Is that Apple's fault?
