Mac OS X Some detailed benchmarks of Snow Leopard. "The performance improvements we encountered in Mac OS X 10.6 through our benchmarks we were quite astonishing. Thanks to the introduction of the Grand Central Dispatch, 64-bit migration, OpenCL support, and other refinements made "under the hood" of Snow Leopard, this is one hell of a fast operating system. We were quite appalled with multiple tests exhibiting nearly 50% performance boosts over Mac OS X 10.5.8. While that was an extreme improvement, many other tests ran 10~16% faster. In a few tests, the performance was the same or the delta was statistically insignificant, but in a couple tests, there were regressions."

??? It should be Apple's responsibility to provide full connectivity to a Microsoft server product in the OS when Microsoft don't even do that in their own OS?

Shouldn't the question be asked of MIcrosoft "Why has it taken this long to get a full version of Outlook (even though there is still no feature parity) in Mac Office?"

It's a pretty big leap to read that into "Now if I could just get it to log in to my Exchange server..."

Yeah dude, I'm just frustrated that my iPhone connects just fine to Exchange, as does Entourage, but SL Mail will not despite it being the main new feature touted.
