Care to expand on that? I never saw any forum or comment post suggesting that Ghandi was out of line or something. At least, nothing like pluscard or other trolls. He had all the good news on anything Apple-related.

OpenCL looks pretty sweet, as well...hopefully AMD and nVidia completely support it.

The last PPC was sold in August of 2006 (less than two years ago).
Leopard is a 64-bit OS.
Leopard is too sluggish for you? What are you running it on? Leopard runs just fine on my Dual 2.7 G5.
It will be interesting to see how Snow Leopard performs on early/current Core Duo/Core 2 Duo based hardware vs hardware released post Snow Leopard.

They also orphan the first of the Intel MacBooks, which used 32bit-only Yonahs.

It'll run great on my Hackintosh main box, but meh, when your Mac can't run OSX, seems odd to have your beige box run it instead.
And that added complexity extends to third-party hardware too, of course.adisor19 wrote:Snow Leopard will come in 2 transparent versions 32bit and 64bit depending on what type of machine it is being installed on.
