Mac OS X Snow Leopard available for pre-order

snow_leopard_imageI love that the upcoming version of OS X  for the Mac, 10.6 Snow Leopard, is available for the dirt cheap price of $29 to upgrade. The family pack that allows you to upgrade up to 5 computers in a household is $49.

Couple of things:

The new operating system has been promoted as a refinement of Leopard as opposed to an entire new OS. Focused on improvements as opposed to new features.

    Ordered mine first thing this morning at the first sniff of availability. Need to smell new products? There’s an app for that.

    DANGER!
    DANGER!

    You know the first few versions of this are going to be “buggy”.
    I can see the internet posts now…

    “I INSTALLED THE NEW SNOW LEOPARD AND NOW MY ITUNES LOST ALL MY MUSIC! HELP!!!!”

    Hold-off because this shit never fails to happen.

    I beg to disagree Joey – I’ve upgraded on the first day for each of the last 3 OS X operating systems and have yet to have a problem. I know that happens sometimes, but it hasn’t been my experience.

    Second thing – this is really a upgrade in the true sense of the word – it isn’t a whole new operating system as Leopard was to Tiger. While some things will look and work different, there aren’t a lot of new features. It’s really being promoted as a refined Leopard.

    (Of course now that I’ve said I’ve never had a problem, I’m doomed.)

    I wish you good luck!

    I hope I am wrong. It would be nice not to have to worry about installing a new OS without it doing anything counter-productive.

    Let me know how it goes.

    No luck needed. Again, Apple has historically been very good about not releasing crap. A lot of people, do not read the instructions prior to installing. Read the process before hand, allow for enough time to install, and make sure your computer matches the specs as outlined by the manufacturer.

    One of the big things to do is to make sure you back up your hard drive – not just right before, but back up all the time. I’ve lost my computer and recovered by having a back-up plan.
