Snow Leopard Notes & Cautions – Part1

My Apple Snow Leopard disk came Friday via Fedex, just as Apple promised.

Snow Leopard box

Upon getting home I started the install process.  The quoted time for install was 45 mins, and that was pretty accurate.  I did an install over the top of my existing Leopard 10.5.8 installation on my Aluminum iMac 24 Dual 2.8Ghz with 4GB ram.  All-in-all the installation went 100% perfect.

Here are some observations so far:

Application Compatibility Notes:

  • VMware Fusion 2.0.5 works fine wih Windows 7 RC1
  • Adobe Lightroom 2.4 works fine
  • Photomatix Pro 3.1.3 works fine
  • Handbrake 0.9.3 works fine
  • Firefox 3.5.2 works fine
  • Plants vs. Zombies game works fine
  • Drobo Dashboard 1.5.1 with firware 1.3.4 works fine

In part Part 2 I will provide more in depth observations.
