Forum Question: What is the real clincher reason for getting Lion?

Like everyone, I’m keen to try Lion, and I don’t think it’s a terrible pocket pinch either. I’m just curious on couple of counts:
A previous post spoke of reservations against Launchpad and you rightly said that Launchpad may not be for all. I too am a Spotlighter.
Similarly, I’m not sure if Mission Control has any distinct advantage over Expose/Spaces as it is now.
So my question is – if these 2 added features don’t attract me, what really would be the clincher reason to get Lion? The autosave is an awesome reason, but is it only for Textedit? If it interfaces with Iwork, I’m sold!

    Versions/Autosave is for many apps. Pages, for instance. More third-party apps will be adding support for it soon.
    Security is much better in Lion, but that’s out of my area.
    Lots of nice things. Loving Mission Control and Full Screen Apps myself. Never liked Expose/Spaces as much.
    I don’t know. Get to to a store and try it.
    But I always want the latest and greatest, you know? Life is too short to use old stuff when newer stuff is available for virtually no cost.

    I just saw a vid – you can drag results from Spotlight and drop onto desktop. That is just super, esp for those hard pressed for time and needing access to multiple files together urgently. You can drag, drop and use and later discard the copies.

    I have been to the Apple Mac site, and as i said that problems would start straight away. I went through them,and i lost count of the problems on display. I am not going to be kept in a Zoo. Elephant will come out in a couple of years. The problems with Snow Leopard is enough for me,and judging by the forums, it still has a lot of problems. Lion i do not want to know! Topic MOUSE- i never got used to the apple mouse,or a Microsoft mouse. I am using a Targus laser mouse, it`s great.
