snowleopardYou may not have noticed yesterday, but the Apple Store went down briefly for a few hours in the morning. Of course, rumors quickly started to fly”"”New iPods! We’re finally getting a Mac Tablet! Steve Jobs is going to sell himself””"but, alas, the excitement was short lived. Apple bumped up Snow Leopard’s release from September to August 28. Maybe not the usual excitement generated from that yellow post it note, but good news nonetheless.

Snow Leopard is going to be a $29 upgrade, and looks to be worth every penny. Most of the enhancements to Leopard under the hood adjustments rather than eye candy; full 64-bit compatibility, speed improvements across the board, and supposedly installation will recover 7GB of HDD space. Add to that Microsoft Exchange support, better OpenCL graphics support, and those fancy new wallpapers, and it’s hard to justify why you wouldn’t want to upgrade.

We’ll let you know our thoughts when we install it this Friday. You should feel free to do the same.
