>> The reason I suggested manually uninstalling the old Xcode is that that is what I had to do on my system. I migrated to a Lion system from a Snow Leopard system, and Xcode 3.2.6 was migrated over too. Then when I installed Xcode 4.3 via the Mac App Store, it did not automatically uninstall the old Snow Leopard Xcode, even after opening Xcode.app. I even unintentionally opened the old Xcode 3.2.6 app after that, and was confused why Xcode 4 features had gone missing.
> Certainly  curious why the upgrade process behaves differently for different people. Clearly something isn't right. That's why i've resisted the upgrade to Mountain Lion; i've been bitten too often by problems that exist with early versions of new release OS updates on the Mac platform. 

I'm using snow-leopard and everything works perfectly: gnome-terminal, wireshark, gimp, wget, latex ...
After watching the woes unfold here why would I upgrade, what does lion offer that I don't have? (facebook connectivity etc is rather like a lead balloon)
