Do I need Snow Leopard

I used Leopard bootcamp to install Windows 7 (32 bit) in a new partition on my brother's late edition white Macbook.

Everything seems to be running ok, but I read on an Apple page that Apple plans to support Windows 7 only with Snow Leopard.

What exactly does that mean? Can I upgrade the Bootcamp drivers without purchasing Snow Leopard (I know--cheapskate but no plans to use Mac OS at all on this computer; I know he should have bought a Dell but it's too late for that.)

If everything is running fine, then no, you don't need SL. You can just keep running with the current drivers.

idk

its your choice, if it suddenly stops working, then yes you should. and like, the other guy above me said "if everything is working fine, then, no, you don't need to upgrade to snow leopard."

It's unclear how Apple will distribute the new driver package, but you can bet that they won't provide them automatically to BC 2.x (i.e. Leopard).

I'm sure they'll end up on torrent sites quickly, but the only sure way to get access legitimately is to pay the $25 for SL shipped from Amazon.
