Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) available Fri

Apple’s latest revision of the Mac OS operating system, version 10.6 (codenamed “Snow Leopard”) drops tomorrow (Fri) for an upgrade price of $29. Yes, $29. Why? Because Snow Leopard is meant to be more of a performance and efficiency improvement, not a version replete with new features.

Not only is the memory footprint smaller, but the disk space taken up by the core OS is smaller (by ~7GBs). However, this version drops support for the PowerPC architecture and now only supports the Intel CPUs that power today’s line of Macs.

The improvements and bug fixes, not to mention the price, so far have been hailed positively.
