If anybody upgrades, could you report on the outcome?

I am amused - but in retrospect, not surprised - that a hot topic on Macintouch right now is migrating email from Eudora to something that will run under 10.7.

Does anyone here feel locked into any Rosetta apps? Any other thoughts on the new OS?

I am lazy and only have 10.6 running on my newest Mac which came with it preinstalled. My laptop is still running 10.5. I am interested in other people's experiences with upgrades, though!

Anyone tried it yet? Experiences? Opinions?

I still haven't gotten around to updating to 10.6 on my laptop, so I haven't had a chance to poke around yet. I've been seeing mentions of huge price drops on existing software, though, which is a pleasant surprise. For example, Aperture is reportedly $79 after retailing for $199 on a disc.

Has anyone here tried Safari 5 yet? I'm mostly hearing about the new extension support, which... well, if I wanted extension support, I'd already be using Firefox.

So, I'm considering making the plunge and upgrading to Snow Leopard as soon as I upgrade my laptop's hard drive, and in order to make sure that the rest of my apps will work with the upgrade, I've relied on this compatability chart, and I thought it might be useful to spread around in case anybody else is considering whether they currently want to upgrade.

If you have an HP printer, you may want to check the list of supported models again. Apple just released updated HP printer drivers for Snow Leopard, and my HP Deskjet, which was missing from the list before, is supported now.

My husband has jumped from 10.4 to 10.6 and is mostly up and running. I'm not ready to upgrade myself yet. Anyone else tried and had issues?

FYI: 10.6

Mac OS X v10.6: About incompatible software

The list includes Parallels Desktop 3 and earlier, as well as several virus scanners and hardware drivers.

There is also a list of supported printers and scanners, and an overview of 10.6 printing features.

The new QT app, "QuickTime Player X", appears to be a rewrite from scratch. (This reminds me of the iMovie upgrade from a few years back.) If you miss anything that was in the previous version, you can reinstall QuickTime Player 7, or if you have a QT7 Pro key, that page says the QT7 player will be automatically installed when you upgrade.
