Let me tell you a little about my concern: I have a external harddrive set to NTFS that I'm using with Vista. I want to be able to have full compatibility with my MBP meaning both read and write. As of now I understand that I can get NTFS3G for this. I'm wondering if Snow Leopard is going to eliminate the need for me to tamper with NTFS3G since I'm a little computer illiterate. Also, is there any reason for me to believe that there will be a minor speed bump or update between now and September, right after the big line-up change?
