I am not sold on it yet, but I may get used to it. If I can't, it's very easy to revert back to how it was before Lion. Namely, go to System Preferences, Trackpad, then the Scroll And Zoom tab. From here all you do is uncheck "natural scrolling." Pretty simple. What is your favorite new feature?</p>

For me it's Mission Control , new Mail app and the overall increase in system speed. I also like Launchpad though how helpful it is remains to be seen. Wish the new Mail app had "Swipe to delete" for individual emails.

I've already gone back to the "unnatural scrolling".
The launchpad doesn't hold much value for me YET.
MissionControl is okay. But I was okay with Spaces as it was.
All have been a bit disappointing. :(
