That's because you have to give it more than five minutes.

It took me about an hour. I initially had the same reaction as you -- "WTH??" -- and switched it back to "normal."

After I had finished a big project, I decided to give it another go. Apple rarely leads me astray, so I figured they had a reason for doing this. I had to actually *watch myself* working with the iPad to realise that this was, in fact, the way it should work.

As I say, an hour or so later I was perfectly comfortable with it. Brain rewiring complete!

I've left it now in "natural" scrolling mode. I'll be the first to say, however, that if you use Lion with a Magic Trackpad, ALL the gestures and scrolling make A LOT MORE SENSE.

No, I love the Lion too, works well except some videos like avi, mkv can't play normally in Quicktime and have to convert with ifunia.
Overall, the Lion is cool, I actually enjoy the full screen, Multi-Touch Gestures, and Mission Control etc.

I disagree, when I push a book away from me or a piece of paper, I do not pull it towards me, but push it away. Logic, and already applied to the iPhone, Ipod, and iPad. Makes sense. But there are a whole bunch of idiosyncrasies we have gotten used to over the years and we now find 'the right way' although they should be done the other way. Just give it a bit of time, and you will see that it is more natural.

Again when it comes to "natural" scrolling vs. normal scrolling (notice I called the old one normal?) it's exactly this:

"Natural' scrolling treats it as if you are grabbing the document itself and moving it. (ala ipad, iPhone)
"Normal" scrolling treats it as if you are grabbing the UI element (i.e. the scroll bar) and moving it. (ala the way it's been done on computers forever)

Maybe this is one of the reasons Apple seemed to want to hide the scrollbar UI elements -- they want the user to focus on the document itself and not the UI elements around it.

Unless Apple releases a "natural scrolling" patch for SL I'll be staying with the normal scrolling for some time to come. I can get used to it either way around I'm sure, but not having to switch back and forth between both.
