Re: Snow Leopard for Mac
Partitioning is a very good idea, I have a partitioned external HDD and backed up my system with Super Duper before I did the upgrade - now using one of those partitions as my time machine drive.
I got my iMac in late 2006 (Intel Core Duo 2) and he was impressed so he went and bought a virtually identical one three months later. Nearly three years (and a RAM upgrade, which I am convincing him to do) later the only significant problem I've had was an audio driver conflict when installing Logic Studio, which I solved by just re-building Tiger about six months ago. It amazed me then how easy it was to re-build (having experienced some pretty hairy Linux fiddlings) and it carries on with 10.6. 10.6 really is very good, but I think a couple more bugs might be uncovered in the next couple of weeks.
