    Seems like a waste to me, especially with people having problems with programs, etc.

    seems like a good deal for an operating system, considering you can do a clean install with it for $25 shipped

    you only have to buy the $30 snow leopard pack. apple admitted it, and then went and shot a programmer behind the shed.

    not unless you feel like donating that much money to apple.


    Given Apple's history in this area, no one should have been surprised to find out that Apple chose the much simpler option: the $29 "upgrade" DVD of Snow Leopard will, in fact, install on any supported Mac, whether or not it has Leopard installed. It will even install onto an entirely empty hard drive.​
