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'd like to point that DX is free because Microsoft (when DX was around versions 2 and 3) wanted to push it as "THE" APIs for developing. Given that they had the "biggest" marketshare (Win311/95/98...), they wanted to make sure that DX was available for everyone. It was a marketing decision (and a good one).


++ Thank you for making my point for me. Selling some APIs as an upgrade is ridiculous.


If anyone here doesn't see the benefit of Snow Leopard, then they can clearly stay with Leopard and wait until 10.7.x.

I use XP, VISTA, Win7 (Beta and now RC) and OS X (Jaguar, Panther, Tiger, Leopard) and I find Snow Leopard to be a fantastic upgrade. There are *lots* of hours of work put into this upgrade and it will only lead to better applications in the future. End users not wanting to upgrade can happily stay in 10.5 and stop complaining.


++ Don't blame the Apple user base for complaining... I am not one of them. My point is that you all should be complaining. Apple shouldn't get a "pass" jus because you guys bought into their ridiculous club.
