I upgraded to OS X Lion yesterday, everything went fine and I used it for the day without crashes or problems. In the evening, I decided to burn myself a DVD from the installer, and I did a clean install. Am I the only one to notice that the OS X Lion clean install is buggier than the upgrade? Why is that?
Examples of "buggier":
- I wasn't able to finish the initial user account set up. At the moment of taking a picture of myself for my account, I got away from my computer 10 minutes, it seemed to go on sleep, and it never woke up.
- After that, on the login screen, I entered my pwd, pressed ok, and the wait cursor showed up. I let it spin for 10 minutes, then got tired of it and restarted the computer.
- Finally, this morning, after my computer woke from sleep mode, the mail full screen application froze on an administrator login screen.
After a couple of weeks of using Lion, everything goes smoothly. The issues I had have gone away automatically.
