    So as I understand it, Snow Leopard is completely 64-bit meaning 32-bit apps will not run. How will Time warp/time capsule restore apps from 10.5 when you upgrade to a 10.6 machine?

    We don't bump threads.

    I don't really see how this is a problem at all. When you update, Time Machine will update your backup to BE Snow Leopard...

    So you're not even dealing with 32-bit apps...

    It's not "Time Warp"...

    Where did you get the info that 32-bit apps won't run on Snow Leopard? False info...

    Funny thing, I got it from an Apple Insider editorial called, "Windows 7 vs. Mac OS X Snow Leopard: Apple ups the ante". They say 64-bit will be the default instead of an option.

    If I was using a MacBook with 32-bit binaries and then I upgrade to the latest MacBook with Snow Leopard, Time machine won't have the 64-bit binaries. Hmmm maybe Apple's Update program will replace the 32-bit binaries with 64-bit ones.

    Since when was there an "option" to choose between OS X 32bit vs. OS X 64bit?

    Leopard has always been somewhat of a "hybrid" system between the 32bit and 64bit...

    Unless you're talking about OS X Home Premium... OS X Business... OS X Ultimate.. OS X Basic.... :)

    For all who don't know. Mac OS X has been 64 bit since Tiger.
