Only 18.45%???

Despite the fairly modest number of “insanely great” new features, Snow Leopard is (imo) the most successful iteration of OS X since 10.1. I haven’t (yet) found a feature or operation pointlessly upgraded or improved. Using Snow Leopard has been an undiluted pleasure. What more can I say?

Some of us cannot upgrade to 10.6.
Some of us are waiting for QuickBooks 2010.

Some of us shouldn’t wait (for QuickBooks).
