Apple Shipping Snow Leopard on August 28th
Monday, August 24, 2009
Posted by: Glenn

Well, the cat is out of the bag. Apple has announced that Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard will go on sale Friday, August 28th at Apple's retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers, and that Apple's online store is now accepting pre-orders. According to the company, Snow Leopard builds on a decade of OS X innovation and success with hundreds of refinements, new core technologies and out of the box support for Microsoft Exchange. Snow Leopard is available as an upgrade to Mac OS X Leopard users for $29. The Snow Leopard Family Pack, a single household, five-user license, is also available for $49.

I got me a family pack ordered up. I'll probably wait a couple days to install it though. I just want to make sure there are not major issues being reported.

I guess the stores will have them first thing in the morning on Friday, right? I remember waiting in line for Leopard all afternoon while they shutdown and remodeled the freakin store.

I should have just ordered mine from Apple instead of Amazon. I doubt mine will be coming on Friday now. Sad

The only thing I have seen so far is that menu meters and 1Password haven't seen a compatibility update yet. There are a few more that aren't compatible yet. But the two mentioned are the only two I use that don't work yet.

Wait till you use Safari. BLAZING FAST!

Oh and Xbench ( extremely outdated ) is reporting much lowers scores on people machines running 10.6

Does anyone know the internal build# that finally made the gold master? Rumor was 10A432 but I doubt they plan to ship a version containing obvious bugs.

10A432 is most likely the "GM" build. Developers received no release after this. It is highly unlikely Apple created a new build and had it packaged and shipped in under two weeks after 10A432. I expect a 10.6.1 before the end of Sept.

I'm sure there will be others, but that's good to hear. You know the crew at 1Password will get something out fast.

A fast Safari 4? That's worth a good $30 dollars. Smile

I hardly bother with it man. Just before and after upgrades for comparison.

I am surprised they released it early with some of the bugs out there people are talking about. Mail was supposedly acting up pretty bad. Did you notice anything like that TonyMontana?

You know the mail had some trouble connecting to one of the outgoing SMPT servers. It just needed a different port and it was good to go. The outgoing Gmail server wasn't working at first either but seemed to self remedy itself.

I just use POP with AT&T and Gmail. That said, I thought it was more of a crashing problem than with like protocols. I guess we'll find out on Friday. Stuff that works perfectly isn't much fun anyways. I like getting my hands a little dirty. Smile
