Still in love with 10.6.8 here. Favourite OS of all time by a distance.

Shame they never released an "iCloud" update for 10.6. Gotta keep those new OS X sales numbers up with iCloud only features ;)

Some people will think, I'm still in the past, but I really miss 10.6.8. If some apps would support SL, I would downgrade to the most robust OS of all time. :(

Long may the Snow Leopard updates continue…

My main machine is Mountian Lion most of the time now, but I still have an older machine on SL (and will not be going back to Lion on that one unless I really have to).

And as the order of the day in this thread appears to be mentioning something completely irrelevant… um…. Irrational giraffes wearing shorts, they'd be a strange thing for Apple to sell, wouldn't they?

Thanks for this update, Apple!
SL works like a dream for me, please continue security updates for it.

At 332MB it may be the final fix for trusty old SL. No matter, it soldiers on magnificently!

You're absolutely right. While we're at it, I can't believe that Nintendo keeps making video games when Ford makes whole cars. Get with it, Nintendo!


I am so sick of hearing this! All you guys do is hate on nintendo for no valid reason. FYI! Nintendo also make consoles and stickers. Ford could probably never make a game in their life because their logo is not as good looking and I am so sick of everything.

edit: You know what.. I am just going to update my nintendo with the newest software instead of buying a Galaxy S4 just to rub it in your face.

This must be a mistake. We all know that Snow Leopard doesn't get updates anymore and that the Macs running it are just zombie malware-spreading machines.

Anybody done the SL update yet? always cautious of these things incase the update messes things up.


It works without any problems (so far) on my 2010 Core 2 Duo Mini while using FireFox as my browser. I hope that Apple continues the security updates for 10.6.8 since I have expensive legacy software that is allergic to lions.
