    Default Snow Leopard Upgrade (Mac OS X version 10.6.3) Imminent?



    There is rampant speculation today that a Snow Leopard upgrade is on the way. Some say, in fact, that Monday could begin with the upgrade's arrival. Others expect it sooner - sort of like a Valentine's Day surprise. But are we getting our hopes up too soon?

    The rumor mill began spinning with a report from Softpedia, which purports to have reason to believe that an Apple upgrade for Snow Leopard is practically moments away.

    If it's true that Apple is about to release Mac OS X 10.6.3, Softpedia says that the most recent builds seeded to developers "stand as evidence that development has followed a straight line, with few impediments."

    As of now, the Mac OS X version 10.6.3 will be all about security and basic maintenance fixes. It will also be the third update to the Snow Leopard operating system.

    Of course, there are other clues that an update is forthcoming, the most obvious of which is Apple's move last week to send out a pre-release test beta of Mac OS X 10.6.3. If Apple got the response it wanted from the developers who were sought to test drive AirPort, GraphicsDrivers and QuickTime, then it stands to reason that Apple would roll out the update for all soon - even possibly today.

    We shall find out soon enough if these reports are accurate or a tad bit premature.

    Good news, even though I haven't had any problems with my mac so far, it wouldn't bother me to update and be even more secure...

    Default No major issues
    I haven't had any major issue's. But some applications randomly crash now and then including Finder. Didn't happen on Leopard, so I assume they are just some bugs. Updates are always good

    I have severe slowdowns with every application in Snow Leopard. Things always hang, takes forever to boot up and so on. Could it be because it was an in place upgrade rather than a clean install? I installed it on my Moms iMac and she's had the same big dip in performance that I have. Any ideas what could make it that slow?

    I own a MBP. It's my first Mac and I love it. Though I have noticed some problems with it. One main problem for example, is whenever I switch between application windows, the bar on top where File Edit View are, would not switch to the App I clicked on. Now this does not happen often, just once in a long while, nor does it happen to any specific app, and it's not because I have a lot running where it would lag the processor. Any of you guy experienced this? I own a 15" 2.8 MBP.

    I can only hope for three things from this:
    • Better Exposť (new/old toggle?)
    • Fix the iTunes hotkey bug (no, I don't ALWAYS WANT iTUNES PLAYING)
    • Speed improvements?
    • 64-bit Printer CoreServices?

    In other words: I want SL, perfected.
