Re: Snow Leopard for Mac
I'm going to install and starting testing this weekend. I do IT for a few design companies, so I have to determine if there are any problems with the usual suspects: Quark, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc, before I can recommend upgrading.
Personally, I'm most looking forward to it because it's like Leopard should have been to begin with. I'm a diehard Mac supporter, but my faith in Apple over the last couple years has been shaken by the totally shoddy job they did with Leopard, their refusal to acknowledge and fix numerous bugs even more than a year after its release. It's like they were putting all their eggs in the iPod, iPhone, MobileMe baskets and neglecting the system software.
So, I'm really looking forward to it, but irritated that they've closed the door on PowerPC Macs. I guess that's one reason Snow Leopard is leaner and meaner: they could cut the code way back by only supporting Intel chips. (Or is it a cynical ploy to sell more Macs?)
All in all though, I'm still a big Mac fan. I mean, what else is there? ;)
