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.

Don't be retarded. The entire OS has gone 64bit and Cocoa.



And what actual value does that present the user in THIS upgrade? Why can't I pay $129 for the next one (OSX Litterbox) and just skip it? Does 64bit and Cocoa present any real value in THIS upgrade?

Its no surprise that most OSX users have more cats then the crazy lady down the street... you don't have to take home EVERY stray cat looking for a free meal. In this case its your $29 bucks.

If it is faster and more useful (edit: rather than just easier to use since Leopard is already darn easy to use), then $29 is more than worth it.

Have you ever used Openstep in it's day? I doubt it. The value in the workflow improvements to daily use, not to mention Application upgrades to Cocoa with this new system will be a vast improvement.

VAST improvement? I haven't read a single feature in that list that is a VAST improvement. Me thinks you are using excessive adjectives to inflate your arguments value.

I find it funny that you're whining about upgrading to Snow Leopard considering that Microsoft charges you a lot more if you purchase a PC loaded with 32bit Vista and wish to upgrade to 64bit Vista.

Way to bring Microsoft into an Apple discussion, despite previous posters.

Plus, for the last year or so, most vendors sell the 64-bit version of Vista outright. Rarely find 32-bit on new boxes.
