    I got my SL package on Day 1 but haven't upgraded yet because I really didn't want to deal with any problems yet. I feel like waiting until 10.6.1 especially since we already have gotten news that it's been seeded to developers (correct me if I am wrong).

    Anybody else doing the same?

    waiting to 10.6.3 at least on my whitebook and production machines. it'll give 3rd party time to update their software.

    I'm always waiting for an update and 10.6.1 isn't any different.

    No, I'm not waiting for 10.6.1. I've already updated Flash to the latest version, and I don't have any current issues with SL.

    10.6.1 doesn't seem like a major update (aside from the Flash upgrade) -- take a look in what's coming in it:

    I'll install it when it comes out, naturally, but I don't think it'll be the end-unto-itself that some people -- in general -- thinks it may be. :)

    I yanked SL off to a external until 3rd of 4th update comes out. To many issues but that was expected with any new OS. Apple is starting to rush things and should have waited until other programs were updated to work without problems. The new quicktime should have had a pro version released at the same time too.

    Honestly i haven't experienced any problems with SL. I don't think there is any need to wait unless there are specific programs that are not compatible and you need them, otherwise go for it.

    I'm waiting for 10.6.1, as mention might not solve my current problem.

    right now I'm dropping of 10.6 for
    1, Rss problem on mail
    2, screen blinking every 5min or so.
    3, expose sometimes doesn't work right
    4, won't stop when you use 4finger slide for app switcher while leopard always stop at both corner.

    maybe 10.6.2 or 6.3 will fix all this.

    I got 10.6 and regretted it almost off the bat. I never upgrade immediately, since Apple can't make anything bugfree on the first try, but for some reason, I forgot this with SL. I was on the verge of upgrading to 10.5.7 (yes, for me, it would have been an upgrade) when I found a program I liked and decided to stick with 10.6 for the time being. Hoping 10.6.1 brings a reasonable file size calculation metric back to Finder.

    I'm waiting also because 10.5.8 is doing very well for me right now and I don't really feel like dealing with any problems.

    I am hoping they make 10.6.1 a little more battery conservative.. but other than that I have no other issues:D

    anyone know when it may be released?

    Well, I haven't received the copy of SL that I ordered from Amazon last week, but even when I get it, I'll probably still wait until 10.6.1 is released until I install it.

    Same thing I've always done....

    MacOs 10.5.8 is just perfect to me, so my SL Dvd will be sleeping in a drawer until most of bugs are fixed in 10.6.1, .3, .5, etc, I can wait, why not?

    I'm waiting for .1, i still remember the trauma of upgrading from 10.4 to 10.5, blue screen, losing a lot of stuff, stress :(. I was so trusting that nothing could possibly go wrong. :(
    Otherwise i'm waiting for flip4mac to have a stable SL release. And i have my fingers crossed my old as dirt photoshop 8 will work.

    Knock on wood everything has been fine. The only minor issue is Flip4mac's new version for SL isn't great, large wmv files have a lot of stutter to them.

    On the contrary, there re a lot of developers that aren't part of the Apple Developer Connection, and thus couldn't/wouldn't update their programs until SL was released. Most of the developers who had access to the beta builds prior to release already updated their programs. As for the rest, the issues would be the same no matter how long Apple waited.

    Not to mention there are just some things (64-bit support, multiprocessing, OpenCL) that some developers cannot or will not move to until Apple pushes them to. The OS needs to stay modern, and that's SL's primary goal.

    I don't think there's going to be a Pro version of Quicktime X. No matter anyway, Quicktime Pro 7 stays in the utilities directory when you update.
