Snow Leopard
 
Jim:
Have you run Numerology in Snow Leopard?
Anything we should be aware of before upgrading?
Any changes to core audio that you know of?

thanks in advance.

I've done a couple quick tests on dev builds of 10.6, and have one installed
on my laptop, but haven't checked in a couple months. I don't know of any significant core audio changes. I'll make a note to test the 2.2 build on the version of 10.6 I have now in a day or two.

I will probably move over to 10.6 mid-september. I find it is always prudent to wait a few weeks to see what unexpected problems pop up...

Cheers,
Jim

Yeah no kidding. As a rule of thumb I always wait at least a month or two before upgrading. If it ain't broke don't break it. Although I do have to say with what I've been hearing about the overall increased zippiness of Snow Leopard, I'm very tempted to jump in early. There have been a couple threads on the ableton live forums where people have stated that the CPU overhead actually goes down with 10.6... and its so cheap..... no.... don't do it! :eek:

Thanks for posting those links.

What I do for my own computers is that I always have two or more partitions around so I can migrate from one major OS version to the next smoothly. It goes something like this:

- When first getting a new computer, I split the disk into two partitions.
- I install the current major OS Version on one partition, and use that for my main working drive.
- I also install the previous major OS version on the other partition. (I always need it for testing).
- When the next major OS release comes along, I archive the older OS version and do a fresh install of the new one on the same partition.
- Over time (usually several weeks) I slowly move various software tasks to the new partition.

That arrangement allows me to move back and forth as necessary based on software compatibility, etc.

Cheers,
Jim

An unusual change in 10.6: Disk capacities are now reported in base-10 values:

I've been told Apple's claims of regained HD space with Snow Leopard are -not- influenced by this change in the definition of a gigabyte, in case that was the first thing that popped in anyone else's head.

It is strange though!

jim 08-30-2009 06:27 PM

That is true -- the base install size has dropped quite a bit (gigabytes). I also know that h264 video playback is much improved, cpu-wise. In both cases, they are taking things that they learned porting OS X to the iPhone chipset (smaller install sizes, more efficient video playback) and using them to improve the desktop version.

Cheers,
Jim

Well,

yes, for the ones that do not install with custom options, the difference might be somewhere around what Apple said.
Since years, I install OSX with my custom options (who needs all the printer drivers of the world and all language packages on a desktop or laptop?) and the difference between Leopard and Snow Leopard is not that impressive. Not even halfway back to the size of Tiger.

And after installing other overbloated OSX software (UB .... ) the difference is neglectable. Hope UB is history soon, total nonsense IMHO. What do I need PPC code on my Intellimac for and what Intellicode on my G5? Software should install what is needed ...
So, now I am waiting for SnowiWorks, SnowAperture, SnowDP, SnowLogic, etc.

Ok, SL is definitely a step in the right direction, but Apple is far from being there ...

best
