I'm still nervous about upgrading to Snow Leopard. Is the upgrade stable?
I'm using Final Cut Pro for video editing.

safe as in... what the heck do you mean I have been using it since November and I am not afraid to go to sleep?

I did have to upgrade my aperture software because the old stuff no longer worked but other than that bugs/bug fixes and security updates on a schedule just like leopard.

look at that topic date, it's from 2009.
So time changes.
searching may not help because it find some old threads.
If SL was safe in Oct. 2009, it stands to reason that it's safe now. It's not going to become "less safe" over time. That's the point of posting that link.

The thick of it
I've had Snow Leopard since it came out and have been happy with it, no major issues at all and quite a few improvements over Leopard. I use Final Cut Express and it's been working fine.

The only major difference if you do a lot of video work is that the new Quicktime player doesn't have the versatility of the old one. SL does keep QT 7, so it's still there if you do need it. (I use it far more than the new QT.)

I've used snow leopard since the WWDC release in 2009 and haven't had a problem. There was an issue upgrading after release with some accounts, but that has been fixed. It is safe to update.

Well I'm running 10.6.4 with a flashed 4890, but using the graphics drivers from 10.6.3, other than that, SL's been utterly rock solid for me, and I use my computer for work all day (pretty memory and CPU intensive stuff).

Though, I really never had any problems in the beginning, either. 2006 Mac Pro here.
