    I got retail version. TNT delivered it about 1:35pm. Nope not me on mactalk.com.au
    Whilst its installing, I've been looking at the packaging. This really is aimed at those already using Leopard. Leopard came beautifully packaged with an 80 page book. SL came with a 10 page leaflet and the disc in a plastic sleeve.

    yeah i know, probably because its a evolutionary upgrade focusing on refinements and the environment is in mind. what is your postcode if i may ask? PM it to me or delete it in your post soon after if you are concerned about privacy.

    Congratulations on receiving Snow Leopard! Here in the US it's still late at night Thursday with no SL and all of us are just glued to the forums :D

    Enjoy it and have a good Friday!

    LOL

    I'm sitting in my room waiting for the doorbell to ring (it's 4pm here).

    Turns out the package has been sitting in my mailbox the whole time lol.

    Man, I'm gonna miss the iLeopard theme. At least the dev said he'll be supporting 10.6 soon as his tools get updated.

    Agreed. I'll have to keep my eyes open for when it gets updated. I'm so sick of the aqua blue everywhere.

    Like literally, since I themed my entire Mini I'm still pondering waiting for him or just going ahead and dealing with Aqua. For some reason on my MacBook, the updated Candybar still cant change the Mail icon.

    my benchmarks suffered as well with sn. quartz and gl rendering decreased. went from 220 xbench to 180. But, the system feels overall faster, so i cant complain. Just wanted to let you know that your results currently are normal.

    Well, mine has installed after what seemed like an eternity. Everything is just the way it was, except I'm missing my customisations (which I expected), all the aqua stuff is like high contrast blue (thanks to the higher gamma, not sure I'm liking it), and iStat is broken.

    Spotlight is insanely responsive.

    EDIT: at least bowtie and geektool still work, plus the 10 gigs of extra space will come handy too :D

    WTF. no it didn't. Mine installed in about 35 mins.

    I got back 5GB of room on my HDD

    Your iStat menus work?

    That 5 GB of space you got back...is that with the change in the way SL reports sizes in base 10?

    The first time machine backup for me post install is 7.5 GB. Basically the entire system.
