I don't find that there's any spaces functionality missing in Lion, in fact spaces just got made useful for me:
I can see and interact with all my spaces when I activate expose - cool!
I can add and remove spaces whenever I want - just what I wanted!
And I can switch between spaces with a 3 or 4 finger gesture.

Are there any actual real advancements made in Lion, or is it just a minor facelift? Judging from these videos im going with the latter.

I see no benefit in updating.
