Anybody made the switch to Lion and can tell me if the Logos works fine with that change? Thanks

Yes, and yes.

However, YMMV because if you look over on the Logos Mac forum, you will see a few instances of where some people have been experiencing problems with Logos 4 on the Mac platform.  Also, Logos 4 on the Mac does not yet have complete feature parity with Logos 4 on Windows.  However, since I came straight to Logos 4 on the Mac, this hasn't been an issue for me since I don't know what I'm missing.

After over 20 years with windows I recently switched to a Mac with Lion (October 2011 Macbook pro w/ 8gb memory).  While others have expressed problems with the Mac version it has been very stable for me (no crashes or unusual behaviors). Searches seem to be about %10 slower than on a comparable windows PC and indexing takes twice as long (7700 resources takes about 23 hours for full index on this Macbook, 10 hours on a comparably configured ThinkPad).  I'm not a scholar and my last language class was almost 30 years ago. I do some original language research as part of general study but not a lot of complex morph searches.  Everything I used to use on the windows version works well.  I don't use the beta versions and it seems a lot of the issues mentioned have to do with beta software

To clarify: I have been Mac for several years, and used to Logos 4 in Mac, But Mac now has the new software, OSX lion, that we can upgrade to from current Snow Leopard. I am considering moving tot he new OSX, and am wondering if anybody else has done the same and whether the current Logos does ok in the Lion also.

I made the upgrade a few months ago and have noticed no difference in how Logos 4 performs on my MacBook Pro.

It works perfectly for me on Lion.

Curious about Mac hardware, especially graphics ?

Caveat: am aware of a couple Mac users that assigned Mac applications to Space # in OS X 10.6.8, then use space # when want to switch applications.  OS X Lion desktops are a bit different; while applications can be assigned to a desktop.  If application is open when OS X Lion is restarted, the application appears on desktop 1 instead of assigned desktop: can quit and open application so windows appear on assigned desktop.
