Mac OS X Lion 10.7 Issues

Apple's highly anticipated OS X Lion 10.7 was officially released on July 21st, but with mixed reactions. For the average user, 10.7 offers a wealth of upgraded and new features. But for DJs, there are serious compatibility issues with many DVS systems and production software that might make your hardware nothing more than an expensive paperweight. Many companies have released statements on the compatibility of 10.7 with their software, but we highly recommend you don't upgrade to 10.7 until any software you use has officially announced compatibility with 10.7. Check the links below for the official word from the main DVS and production software companies.
As always, check, double-check and triple-check the compatibility when upgrading your system, especially if your rent depends on it.
