Lion does need more RAM.

It puts you in a different workflow. "Save as" lets you work on things first and then only save when you are happy with the results. But you have to remember to save.

The new "versions" workflow assumes you are already invested in the document but might have different versions of it that you are working with. But it is less accommodating for people who want to do "funny things" with the document.

The new way is more modern as it helps the computer get out of the way for commonly done things. It takes some getting used to after 30+ years of working the old way.
