  • Thawing out the Snow Leopard

    The other day, I upgraded from to OS X Snow Leopard and I wasn’t entirely pleased with Apple. However having used it for a while I have become less resentful. One of the reasons is that Snow Leopard is fast much much faster than Tiger. This is probably due to the new version being a [...]
