Lion's new Mail.app now beats the pants off Thunderbird, IMO.

comment Emacs Ctrl-x ctrl-s command not working in Terminal.app
If you do -M-x describe-key and do C-s (ie. I-search) does it work? It certainly sounds like something is bound to C-s at a higher level than the Terminal.app.

@Bret Moore - what are the differences between the two Macs and their Terminal configs? As a side note, have you tried using iTerm2.app instead (it's a general improvement over Terminal.app and worth using anyway.)

comment Is there any free/paid Windows emulator for Mac OS X?
@Umesh Kacha - s-unno.com domain doesn't resolve for me, so I can't see it. I'd probably recommend that you try VirtualBox if you haven't already. If that doesn't work you can try Parallels or VMWare (they will all require you to install Windows into a virtual machine.) - Parallels and VMWare are commercial solutions, so try your luck with VirtualBox first.

comment What tiny thing in Lion makes you smile or has caught you off guard?
The cut/paste method we had previously on Finder was drag/drop (for same Volume move) or drag/Cmd-drop (for moves to external or network volumes) - There was no keyboard equivalent.

comment What tiny thing in Lion makes you smile or has caught you off guard?
@Tim Büthe - Leopard and Snow Leopard and prior versions of OS X never did this, of course Linux and Windows did it using CUA shortcuts (C-x, C-c, C-v) That's not of use/interest when you're not actually talking about one of those platform. Please cut down the noise, we want signal here. The shortcut on Lion is new, and it's designed in such a way that it addresses Apple's "semantic issue" with "Cut", and instead is copy / move, and not cut / paste.
