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."

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.

The requirements for this to work have been available on Apple's site for quite some time. It requires Exchange 2007. Don't have that at work? Then it won't work.

If you bought SL strictly for this functionality without checking the requirements, it's on you, not Apple.

Excuse me, but why are you even responding?

I'm just saying I'm frustrated that it doesn't work for me. Stop trolling around looking for a fight.

Mail.App has always supported Exchange mail accounts since 10.5. Yes, it used the Web Protocol, but it works and is far quicker than the cruddy Microsoft client for Mac.
