Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 Release; The Battle With Window 7 Is On

As reported Apple updated the Apple Store yesterday and started to take pre-orders for the new OS X Snow Leopard Update. The OS X Snow Leopard is shipping this Friday, August 28th.

Apple also issued now an official press-release detailing the launch of the highly anticipated OS X Update.
Our coverage of the Snow Leopard OS X Update started back in June of 2008. Apple gave a first look at Snow Leopard at the WWDC 2008. Many things have changed since then. Also the market, as Microsoft was able to get Windows 7 ready to launch it just a month after Apple is updating their OS.

The Holiday shopping season will bring lots of new Windows 7 Notebooks, netbooks and PCs. Apple will have to also counter this onslaught with new Apple computers. It will be a fun fall.

Back to OS X Snow Leopard. Apple highlights in the $29 update hundreds of refinements, new core technologies and out of the box support for Microsoft Exchange.

For the first time, system applications including Finder, Mail, iCal, iChat and Safari are 64-bit and Snow Leopard’s support for 64-bit processors makes use of large amounts of RAM, increases performance and improves security while remaining compatible with 32-bit applications. Grand Central Dispatch (GCD) provides a revolutionary new way for software developers to write applications that take advantage of multicore processors. OpenCL, a C-based open standard, allows developers to tap the incredible power of the graphics processing unit for tasks that go beyond graphics.

Snow Leopard is the only desktop operating system with built in support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 (funny statement, but true as for Windows you need to buy Outlook first), and it allows you to use Mac OS X Mail, Address Book and iCal to send and receive email, create and respond to meeting invitations, and search and manage contacts with global address lists. Exchange information works seamlessly within Snow Leopard so users can also take advantage of OS X only features such as fast Spotlight searches and Quick Look previews.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
