Default PT HD 10: Snow Leopard or Lion?

For those who are using PTHD 10 with their TDM systems, do you have any advice as to whether I should use Lion or Snow Leopard? Putting on a fresh install and want the system to run as smoothly as possible once I've got it going...

Thanks in advance!

I've still got about 80% of my work in 9 but I do have a 10 partition and am doing some real work with it.

I'd do Lion since it's the future and you might as well get it working smoothly now.

Of course partitioning is a must IMO, I keep 2-4 boot drives going at any one point in time to test new vers of the OS and/or PT.

As a PT Tech for a major dealer, I can say that PT 10 is running super smooth on Lion. I do custom installs for clients and all systems ("LE", HD native, TDM, and HDX I have yet to experience any problems or major speed bumps in Lion.

This is a great surprise to me given that my experience with PT 9 was the complete opposite. As a Pro Tools user since 6.X, I was never so frustrated as I was with 9. I think Avid got it right with PT 10 and I am a fan.

My personal system:
Mac Pro Dual 2.6 "woodcrest" with PT 10 on Lion and an 002 interface...never had a problem works great.
