Apple InfoWorld's Galen Gruman provides a look at the best features Mac OS X Lion has to offer, as well as the biggest disappointments of Apple's latest OS. Whole disk encryption, the new Server application, automatic file versioning and locking against accidental saves, iOS-like configuration policies for IT, automatic syncing across Mac OS X and iOS 5 are among the key new features of Mac OS X. But many of the even the best new features still fall somewhat short, including the new contextual scroll bars, issues with sharing automatically versioned documents, the lack of external disk encryption after the fact, and the complexity of new Mac OS X Lion Server app.

I think Launchpad is a great feature if you only have a few apps. Easy click or gesture based access.

But once you have to scroll Launchpad, it fails. Then you have to hunt for apps. Applications like Photoshop also scatter so many launchers/updaters/icons into the App folder that itself takes up the entire Launchpad area.

For power users, using the Dock with most commonly used apps, plus using Spotlight to find apps when needed, is the best way to go.

I've already removed Launchpad from my shortcuts since it just can't handle having many apps.
