I decided to break down and install 10.6 on my fiancees macbook last night and within 20 seconds of it booting up this is the converstion. Her: Did it work, is it done? Me: Yes. [goes to about mac and shows version] Her: It doesn't look any different, everything is the same. Me: Yeah, it's mostly under the hood changes for speed and stability Her: So, no UI changes, no new features? Me: Well, there are but nothing you will really see, everything is to improve the experience. Her: Did you pay for this? Me: No, it's a developers release I get it for free. Her: Good, don't. I'm guessing a lot of people are guying to buy the upgrade expecting some new things(even though they say nothing is new graphically) then get upset(on forums no less) about how much of a waste it is. From my perspective it's faster but even I've only noticed a few minor changes. Also, the installer crashed while installing it and it messed up the live partition. It took me a good two hours to fix it but if that happened to an average user they would not know what to do. I hope it's not GM.
