Looks like the much talked about Mac OS X, version 10.6, code-named Snow Leopard, will make its debut Friday, Aug. 28. It is a faster, smaller and supposedly smarter OS. OK, not smarter, but it looks like a worthy upgrade. Snow Leopard is half the size of the previous version and frees up to 7GB of drive space once installed.

Most of the changes in the new version of the operating system are under the hood. Our colleagues at TheAppleBlog have put together a series of posts that explain in-depth some of the key OS features including: Grand Central Dispatch, Exchange and Quicktime X. They also have prepared a handy guide that details how to upgrade to Snow Leopard.

Being a Mac user, I can’t wait for Friday to show up! Are you planning to spend $29 for the upgrade?

  1. Ordered one for my computer, and will order a second at the up-to-date pricing for my wife’s new Macbook pro 13″ cheaper than the $49 family pack for our two intel machines.
