Don't be quick to upgrade
Early adopters of Apple's Snow Leopard service pack are
probably regretting their zeal to buy the upgrade on the first day.
Reports are coming in that large chunks of Apple's
limited supply of software actually do not work on the new operating system. Apparently in its quest to try and put a spoiler on
Window's release of Windows 7, Apple decided not to wait for software designers
to upgrade their products. While some such as Adobe Photoshop and Apple's own apps
Mail, Calendar, and iTunes all work others do not.
Some only work if you are prepared to tinker with the
operating system, something that most Macheads can't do because they
trained to accept the default settings that Steve Jobs tells them are
right. Microsoft's Live Mesh sync and backup product doesn't yet
work. iStat Menus, a Mac system monitor and the preferences pane for
universal-app pop-up notifier is broken.
The Developers are moaning that Apple caused problems for
them by releasing Snow Leopard early.
