I find folk think that the upgrade of the OS may solve the age old maintenance items for them. Sadly I've written too much about this.
This one is about the reliability of OS X 10.6.8 and the newer versions of OS X Lion.
I have a 13 in MBP (Dec 2010 with OS X 10.6.8 as default).
While I have not had any serious problems with the running of the OS, I have wondering if I should not be upgrading to the new OS X Lion? I have been pretty satisfied with this version of OS X so far. But, now I wonder if it would not be better to shift to the newer OS and if this would also not make the performance peppier?
If I do go for an upgrade to OS X Lion, could this cause problems with reading any of the data that I have saved on this version of OS X?
I am particularly thinking of MS Word files etc. Will the current version of MS Office 2011 for Mac work equally reliably with OS X Lion?
Are there any software glitches involved in shifting from OS X to Lion? And basically is it worth it, given that I do not do any specialist work other than lots of typing, internet, and movies/music?
