Apple At the WWDC today, Apple has lifted the veil on a number of features of its upcoming operating system, Snow Leopard. Most of the work on Snow Leopard has gone into under-the-hood technologies and optimisations, but there are also a number of interface tweaks. The company also updated some of its laptops, while also lowering their prices. We got all the news from MacRumorsLive.com.

I think we just disagree then. I see this as huge possible improvements in functionality and end user delight. I am an end user, and I think Snow Leopard looks great, especially because of the little things that it will do better.

Apple has resisted doing 32-bit and 64-bit lines of their OS like most others (Linux and Windows). One could look at Snow Leopard as the introduction of their 64-bit OS with other advancements. So these are not service pack level changes - since when in Windows can you upgrade from 32-bit OS to 64-bit OS with some service packs? You can't do that in Linux either. Your logic is flawed, bro.


Tell that Grandma you got switched over to Mac 'cause its easier then windows' about all that and I bet the reaction is 'meh.' My logic isn't flawed at all, you keep assuming that I think Windows is better - I don't. Just because you drink the magic kool-aid doesn't make it interesting to the rest of us. Please tell me what all these great changes are - I don't see any in the feature list. The 64bit/Cocoa changes have NO value to the customer... they may an update from now, but this service pack is not worth $29 to most people. Get the next version and save yourself $29.
