    Are we likely to see 10.6.8 before its security updates only?

    Agreed, SL is stable and all the 10.6.x updates bug fixes for the most part.

    There may very likely be one more point release before Lion is released.

    It'd be nice if there was a final one for any remaining small bugs on Snow Leopard, especially for those of us that might skip Lion. I don't know of any, but I'm sure there are some Apple's heard of.

    10.6.8 will probably be released 3-4 weeks before the release of Lion, just as 10.5.8 was released a few weeks prior to the release of Snow Leopard.

    I sure hope so, I cant even use my external display right now because of some sort of bug that doesn't let you go from hdmi to dvi, and I dont wanna spend anymore money on a dvi adapter. It should work out of the box, the adapter setup has no trouble working on my macbook pro when I am booted into windows or ubuntu, so why not OSX, I am slightly ticked off about this!

    For the fact that the Mac is the first computer hacked every year pwn2own I figure you guys would care more about security.

    Oh who cares if we have lots of holes and known security bugs, long as it's stable!

    There are separate security updates for that stuff I think. I don't think point releases usually focus on security, but I might be wrong.

    Clearly the person who asked? Seriously?

    I would think we're going to see a 10.6.8 for certain. If for nothing else it will be likely required to incorporate the new "cloud" system that seems to be on the way.

    Err... Apple releases security updates well after an OS has its final point update. Leopard is still getting software updates and will until Lion comes out. Snow Leopard will until the next major version after Lion is released, etc.
