Snow Leopard – Evolutionary Changes

August 31, 2009 at 10:06 pm Leave a comment

Snow Leopard was a breeze to install.  It took about an hour on each of 4 machines that I upgraded Friday night.  The upgrades went without incident on two Core 2 Duo minis, an original Core Duo iMac, and a Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro.

So, what’s new in Snow Leopard?  I won’t bore you with the features that you’ve most certainly already read about on a dozen other sites.

I know this is purely objective, but the OS does feel faster than Leopard.  Some of the speed is due to the re-write done to Finder, but I think it is in large part due to the fact that most major apps now have 64 bit support.  What’s more, I expect that as more applications are updated to 64 bit support, things will seem snappier, though Apple’s core applications are the ones that the majority of people use.

While it’s not the dramatic change from Panther to Tiger, or from Tiger to Leopard, it is a worthwhile upgrade, even if you can’t see all the changes that have taken place.  For $49, I upgraded 4 machines to the latest Mac OS, one that will be improved upon and supported for at least a few more years.  I call that a bargain.
