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.

The only one making this about windows is you, you are the one who compared snow leopard to a windows service pack, you are the one who keeps mapping into a windows-speak.

DX is "free" in the sense that it comes included with the OS. However, there is a tacit costs in the sense that DX10 is associated with Vista, and DX11 will most likely be only for Windows 7. So yeah, it is "free" but you still need to pay Microsoft to play.

If you think things like 64-bit rewrite of major components of the OS, the introduction of grand central + OpenCL to make MIMD/SIMD threading relatively transparent, etc, etc... are "minor" improvements. Either you have little knowledge of computing in general, or you have a weird derange syndrome regarding OSX.

You are yet to provide a cohesive argument (i.e. one which does not involve grossly misinformed assumptions, overly condescending posts diminishing posters that reply to you with actual facts, or simply trolling away) regarding why $30 for an upgrade to Snow Leopard is such a "bad" value... you should reconsider your position.

I will not be holding my breath though...
