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.”

Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we’re already talking to partners about the project, and we’ll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.”

Fans Tout Windows XP’s Superiority over Vista…DUH!

Fans Tout Windows XP’s Superiority838354CD-9363-43AD-AC1B-2D8F5743718B.jpg

Fans of Windows XP are reacting to Microsoft’s plan to retire the six-year-old operating system by papering the internet with blog posts, cartoons and petitions. They trumpet Windows XP’s superiority to Windows Vista, Microsoft’s latest PC operating system, whose consumer launch received lukewarm reviews.
