    so, did anyone run out and grab a copy of it this morning? i'm pretty stoked for it, even though it doesn't appear to be a major difference from leopard, but man there's definitely some awesome features of it that i can't wait to play with...but i gotta wait a couple weeks til i can get mine...

    also, how about that price? only 29 bucks for a new OS? that's fantastic!

    I love Snow Leopard. Granted, it's cheap because it's not really a "new" OS but merely a streamlined Leopard. Freed up a huge amount of space on my hard drive and things seem to actually be opening faster (as Apple claims). I used this plug-in called WideMail which made Mail widescreen and it isn't compatible which is disappointing, but very minor. Everything else is working fine.

    Like the changes to Expose and the shut down and start are definitely faster.

    Still playing around with it and had to install Rosetta for some of my old things to work, but nonetheless this is a great release. (At this point that's how I feel; could change.)

    That porno has been out for years!

    Edit: Oops, that's "Search for the Snow Leopard." Sorry. Carry on.

    I'll be fine waiting for an OSX86 release of it.
