Probably today or tomorrow I'll be sitting on my iMac running Snow Leopard, not a simple Leopard or a Tiger, a Snow Leopard! RAWR!You might be asking yourself why they didn't come up with a new and more original name but it's actually pretty simple.
This is more like an update for Leopard, it brings lots of awesome new features like Quicktime X, support for 64 bit ( doesn't really matter to me ), OpenCL, which I'm particularly interested in, it's faster and it takes up less space on the hardrive. Besides those it looks the same, feels the same, works the same way and smells the same.
I believe it's actually a big step for Apple not changing the UI every single in every single version they make. It's still pretty though.
I don't see a big deal in this new version but I'll surely upgrade. I just hope that all my apps work well.
There are already some compatibility issues but I'm sure they'll be solved in the weeks following.
So for me it's not such a big deal like Windows 7 mostly because Leopard and Tiger were already very good and Windows Vista sucked "disks" a lot, it was a slow and terrifying experience making me install Linux on my laptop.
Besides all of those things, I got a new Wireless Apple Keyboard today ( thanks Mom n Dad! ) and I love it! I'm still getting used to it because somehow the keys seem to be in different places so don't be shocked if you see a misspell.
I'm still intrigued about Backtrack 4, first came the beta a few weeks later the pre-release and I have no idea when the final build will be released but I'm looking forward to it.
