Interesting that Apple is releasing these back-updates for 10.6. I would guess that Apple hasn't seen the kind of upgrade numbers they expected for Lion. It'll happen over time; I'm still using Snow Leopard myself on my main machine.


Actually, I think it is really good to see this. To me it means Apple recognises that many people are staying with Snow Leopard for a variety of reasons and they are fully supporting that OS still.

Actually, it's just what Apple always do. Version n-1 of OS X is always well supported until version n+1 is released, at which point it goes into maintenance mode (security and critical bugfixes only).

Apple can try and force feed me Lion all they want, but I am NOT switching to it until they fix the bloated garbage that Lion is.

Not to mention, they need to bring back Expose (or ungroup windows). Productivity in Lion is a nightmare. It wouldnt kill apple to stop with the ipadification of OS X.

Anyway, good thing theyre still *somewhat* updating Snow Leopard. I expect a 10.6.9 release sometime soon.
