Mac OS X v10.6: About incompatible software


Curious about what will and will not be working after you upgrade to Snow Leopard, Apple has a list for that!

“Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard is designed to protect your Mac from certain incompatible software that can quit unexpectedly or cause other issues in Mac OS X v10.6.

When you install Snow Leopard or migrate to Snow Leopard, known-incompatible software is moved to a folder named Incompatible Software on your hard drive.

Snow Leopard also prevents known-incompatible software from opening.  If you see an ‘Incompatible software’ message, contact the software’s vendor or visit their website for a later, compatible version.

Products Affected
Mac OS X 10.6
Software restricted during installation and migration

During installation, Snow Leopard moves known-incompatible software to a folder named Incompatible Software at the root level of the hard drive. If you see this folder on your Mac, use the table below to check with the software vendor to see if any Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard-compatible updates are available.”

One of my Favorite Sites for Mac news, TUAW now has a handy iPhone App!

“Want to read TUAW on your iPhone? There’s an app for that:

I’m not talking about i.tuaw.com, although it still exists (and will continue to evolve — we hear you!). In fact, I am talking about the TUAW native iPhone app [iTunes link]. It works on iPod touch as well. For a full list of features you can check our TUAW app page here.”
