Why not 10.6.9?

If you have a revision nomenclature, stick to it.

This is going to be very confusing. Imagine the support call "What OS? " 10.6.8. "Which One? " Huh?

This. Now we sysadmins have to worry about which version of 10.6.8 is installed on each workstation. ARD won't be of help; it will report both patched and unpatched as 10.6.8. Just what I needed; more work. :confused:

I can't wait for a Lion update... I've had a few crashing issues lately.

I don't have crashing issues, but I do think Lion is pretty buggy.

back to snow leopard for me i think. now im just getting beach balls every time i click on something in the itunes store. did i mention that my display doesnt sleep anymore?

i also asked apple for a refund which they have agreed to.

Lets be clear that just because you don't have problems with your installation it doesn't mean other people are having major issues with theirs.

mac os x lion in my opinion just has too many bugs. Maybe i'll try again when .1 or .2 has dropped.
