    Natural because it's colour and preservative free.

    Took me probably three or four days to use it, now it's incredibly natural and I find going onto a Windows PC to be alien and actually counter-intuitive.

    When using my Magic Mouse, however, I like it the other way so I've set that up.

    I don't care, I use whatever so left it on the new kind of scrolling.

    I got used to it very quickly. As with others I'm at the point where scrolling with the old way on other setups is strange. Even with a scroll mouse the regular way now feels weird!

    Ditto. I thought it was weird at first but I got used to it very quickly for vertical scrolling.

    I realised that it also applies to horizontal scrolling too and am getting used to it.

    Natural. Confuses me a little when switching between Lion and Windows 7 though, haha.

    Natural is no good for me, I can't get used to it with a screen I can't touch. Works well for all iOS devices but for the Macs, no. Regular scrolling is where it's at.

    I'm a fan of the Lion scrolling. I only received a Lion-based Mac yesterday, and so far I've definitely found it more intuitive than the traditional way. As someone that uses inverted controls when gaming, this makes perfect sense :p

    I might actually try natural. I didnt realise Ive been doing this on my android, though it would confuse the hell out of me with the bluetooth mouse with scrollwheel that I have, but maybe that can be reconfigured?

    Natural, this being my first Mac I decided to give the default setting a try. Of course having had an iPhone for 12 months beforehand may have made part of the decision anyway :Pirate:

    Feels unnatural going back to the 80% of the computers I support that are Windows :lol:

    I've got it set on regular atm due to using a Dell BT mouse when I'm sitting at my desk with my MBP, so it feels wrong to have to scroll the wheel the wrong way... I did try to have the trackpad on natural and the mouse on regular but the setting applies to both...

    I also use 99% Windows PCs at work, so that may get a bit confusing too...

    I may change it to Natural if I end up replacing my BT mouse with a Magic Trackpad... then it probably would work for me i think...

    Regular scrolling for me. I use a mouse most of the time with my MacBook Pro so it is confusing having natural scrolling set. IMO natural scrolling only works for touch screen devices. :confused:

    Natural all the way. Everything about it feels right. I've also installed Scroll Reverser on my Snow Leopard Mac mini. :p
