I wasted over 660 megabytes of my download allowance last night to get the 10.5.6 update for a friend's Macbook Air, and now they've released 10.5.7...

Does it fix the problem where you can't connect to a WEP network with a passphrase? No? Oh well, maybe Apple will catch on to the concept of "quality control" and "usability" some time in the next decade.

Mate, if you weren't so lazy and spent some time surfing the internet you would find that 10.5.7 was slated to be released last Friday or sometime this week; no one was ever pointing a gun at your head and forcing you to upgrade to 10.5.6 when all the information out there indicated 10.5.7 was to be released soon.

You use WEP? you might as well have the whole damn thing wide open - I guess security isn't all that important and you don't mind any tom, dick or harry to log onto your wireless network and leech bandwidth (which I find funny given you moaned about a 600MB download using up your allowance).

I'm tired of questions like this coming from fellow Apple users. The fact that he uses not-so-good security doesn't mean Apple shouldn't fix their OS. He's the customer, he uses WEP, and he rightfully expects the damn OS to work.

It's the same attitude that gave us Push Notifications instead of full multitasking on the iPhone.

Type $ before the password to force OS X to treat it as hex, instead of ASCII. i.e. "$deadbeefdeadbeef"
