    Snow Leopard

    If there are some Mac users here, you probably know that there is just couple of weeks until we get our hands on Snow Leopard. Now, as usual you can already DL it on some warez/pirate sites, but i recommend you wait and pay for it, its only $29! Very Happy... So i found some videos on YT just to show you what this baby can do... But first, whats new in v10.6

    Faster, more reliable installation.

    Upgrading your Mac has never been easier. For Snow Leopard, the entire process has been simplified, streamlined, and is up to 45 percent faster, yet more comprehensive and reliable.2 For example, Snow Leopard checks your applications to make sure they’re compatible and sets aside any programs known to be incompatible. In case a power outage interrupts your installation, it can start again without losing any data.

    Smaller footprint.

    Snow Leopard takes up less than half the disk space of the previous version, freeing about 6GB for you — enough for about 1,500 more songs or a few thousand more photos.

    Refined, not reinvented.

    Mac OS X is renowned for its simplicity, its reliability, and its ease of use. So when it came to designing Snow Leopard, Apple engineers had a single goal: to make a great thing even better. They searched for areas to refine, further simplify, and speed up — from little things like ejecting external drives to big things like installing the OS. In many cases, they elevated great to amazing. Here are just a few examples of how your Mac experience was fine-tuned.

    New look, new features for Exposé and Stacks.

    Exposé is refined and more convenient. It’s now integrated in the Dock, so you can just click and hold an application icon in the Dock and all the windows for that application will unshuffle so you can quickly change to another one. Exposé also has a whole new look. Windows are displayed in an organized grid, making it even easier to find what you’re looking for. And stacks — Dock items that give you fast access to a folder of files — are now scrollable, so you can easily view all items. You can also navigate through folders in a stack to see all the files inside it.

    Faster to wake up, shut down, and join a wireless network.

    With Snow Leopard, your Mac wakes from sleep up to twice as quickly when you have screen locking enabled. Shutting down is up to 75 percent faster, saving precious moments when you’re trying to head home or to the airport. And joining wireless networks is up to 55 percent faster.

    More reliable, higher-resolution iChat.

    Now more people can have high-resolution, 640-by-480-pixel video chats, because the technical requirements are less demanding: You need only one-third the upstream bandwidth previously required — 300 Kbps instead of 900 Kbps. And finally, iChat Theater now offers 640-by-480 resolution, four times greater than before.

    Now this looks hilarious, look how fast are applications starting just couple of seconds after booting up...
