Can anyone confirm that it doesn't fix any of the issue that you actually want fixed?

Why do people ask this? It never made any sense to me, as there's nothing you can do about it. It's just another name/number for 10.7.3. :confused:
Because developers have had many builds to .X updates, and sometimes (rarely) the final release is a different build than the latest release developers currently have installed. So if it is a different build than 11D50 it may be of interest to some to know. It's not a dumb question :)

Did they bring back the fine-grade volume controls (shift-option-volume up/down)?

I do wonder why I hear of so many issues with Lion, yet I've had absolutely none of them. I use Lion on my Macbook Pro and it runs amazingly well.

I still have my complaints, like Mission Control sucking compared to Exposé and full screen support being broken on multiple monitors, but as far as the OS functioning correctly as designed, it has been for me.

Maybe there's some common software you are all running that causes these problems. There has to be a direct, tangible reason you have issues, since there are people like myself without them.

I have to admit Lion has disappointed me greatly. I have encountered so many lockups and performance issues since it was released. And worryingly it seems Apple has no idea how to fix them.
