Apple released a new version of OS 10.6 (aka. Snow Leopard). It appears to fix several bugs that people on various forums are complaining about. This a welcome sign from Apple.
As all of you know the pending release of Apple’s latest version of OS X, version 10.6 (aka Snow Leopard), will be available this Friday, August 28th.
To help you decide whether to purchase this upgrade, or more precisely, whether the applications, utilities and plugins you’re using are compatible with OS 10.6. There is a Wiki created to track such information.
So before you rush onto Apple Online Store or other online retailers to place your pre-order. You may want to run down the check list first. See if one of the applications you depends on is on the list. If it is marked as not compatible, you may want to check with the developer before making your purchase.
While checking Apple Online Store Hong Kong last night I pre-ordered OS 10.6 (aka Snow Leopard), also bought an Airport Express to replace my dying Airport Extreme (white flying saucer).
This is the first time in the past 20+ years that I pre-ordered Mac OS. I personally have a MacBook Pro 15″ (mid-2006 MacBookPro1,1) so will not be able to take advantage all that are new in the latest OS. Does this qualify me as a true fanboy?
I recommend anyone with dual core and dual graphic cards to upgrade to OS 10.6, everyone else can wait until more reviews of OS 10.6 are released here on this blog. Unless you’re a die-hard like myself.
