[OT] Lion Update

After being on Lion for about a week now, things seem to be settling down
somewhat.

I'm getting far less spinning beachballs.  When I do get them, they seem to
be related to either Time Machine doing a backup or clicking on the window
of an application that I haven't used for a while.

The Time Machine problem is particularly bad.  It doesn't happen every time
Time Machine is backing up but when it does, it pretty much stops me doing
anything else. I never had this problem with Time Machine prior to Lion so
it appears that Apple may have made some changes to Time Machine in
Leopard.  Or maybe it's something to do with the indexing of the Time
Machine drive that was mentioned.

I'm putting the activation of a dormant application down to some sort of
memory management issues as I seem to recall someone confirming that Lion
did need more RAM.
