Neat, huh. I'm glad I've not been one of the early adopters of OS X this time round ... I think I'll probably wait until about 10.6.4 before doing the update.

Note that CNet has instructions on how to restore your data from a backup (http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-10356505-263.html?tag=mncol;title) - of course, you would need to have a backup first.

Note that I have seen it reported that some users have been logged in as Guest accidentally...
