I just read Macworld's article, Why I'm not committing to Lion -- yet
Chris Breen says, "...I’m not suggesting that Lion is a terrible, horrible, no good OS. It may be a great fit for you—particularly if you use a trackpad and find gestures convenient. Additionally, like every other version of the Mac OS, I expect it will become better baked with each update. And I also understand that I can switch off nearly all of the features that I don't care for.
So, what it boils down to for me is this: What in Lion compels me to abandon what is currently a stable and functional version of the Mac OS? As a mouse-centric power user who’s tweaked his Mac to near-perfection, not enough."
