Just curious to any Mac users out there who will commit the $29 and upgrade to Snow Leopard?

I briefly read through Apple’s site on it but the only thing I really got out of it is that your system will be faster, completely running apps on 64-bit, improved security and a cooler Quicktime.

Any words or thoughts Mac users?

Nothing super spectacular that’s going to make me dish out $30. Though it’s cheap, I’m trying to save up some money and I just spent $55 earlier that week. :P

Already ordered, it costs me less because I recently purchased my mbp so I get some kind of special discount, cost me €8.95.

Will most definitely be picking this up :)

For that price… I can’t see a reason I’d not upgrade the OS

$30 is very cheap. I ‘m gonna wait a week or two for bugs. Basically this new OS should speed up your computer. I’m all for that.

What about the software we have running at the moment, will most of them be compatible with Snow or does this update not affect third party software.

I found this and the only thing I found on my computer that wouldn’t work is Tweetie. :(

Okay, thanks for the link. It’s very useful. I’ve pre-ordered Snow but I’ll wait a few weeks/months before installing it.

I’ll be waiting awhile to hear some reviews, wait for bugs to get worked out and to prepare my system for a complete wipe and install, but yeah, I’ll be upgrading for sure.

An easy way to check for your applications that are/n’t compatible, go to your applications folder and select the first one. Then click CMD + Option + I. This will open an info. window that stays up while you go through your list of apps. Under “General” -> “Kind” It will say the Application type. Currently most of them will say Universal (if you’re on Intel Mac). Only Universal and Intel applications will work. However, that list looks like a better way to check for sure.
