    So Mac OS X Snow Leopard is shipping on the 28th. For the eligible Mac owners: are you getting it on release day (maybe pre-ordered it in anticipation), waiting until the first major patch is released or sticking with your current Mac OS version?

    I would get it in a heart beat if I wasn't running a PPC Mac, since Snow Leopard (10.6) will drop PPC support and be Intel only. :(

    I have to pay all $29, but I'm still doing it. I just hope that if I ever have to do a new installation on a virgin drive that I don't have to install 10.5 BEFORE using the 10.6 disk.

    from what i have been reading you may need the 10.5 disc when installing 10.6 fresh, as it will require some from files from the 10.5 disc, the information they have given out isnt really clear

    Torn at the moment between re-doing my current MacBook Pro or just buying a new one with Snow Leopard on it because they're so nice and shiny

    Not going to get it, as I'm currently using Boot Camp, and Windows XP works fine on my iMac :laugh: Looks like a worthy upgrade though,

    You are lucky for having the money to buy a new laptop.

    Is this a full, standalone OS for $29 bucks? Or just the upgrade?

    The upgrade is only for Mac OS X Leopard users, and is only available to those that are running on the Intel platform.
