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.

@rhetoric.sendmemoney: Actually I just happened to post my comment very late and noticed that you had covered similar points ;)

@tylerdurden: Vista's getting DX11 "for free". XP can't run DX10+ because the driver model has changed. Also; there are significant number of upgrades from Vista to Win7. Yes, interface *does* matter. It's what sells any upgrade.. Mac, Windows, hell even open-source

@NathanHill:
>>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.<<
How the heck does the end-user see any difference? It's new APIs and greater speed. It's not a (significant) revamp of interface, nor of the kernel.

Secondly; it being 32-bit OS is a setback, not a feature..
