    Hey guys -

    First of all I have to say, I know snow kitty only just got released on Friday and I know that some people don't even have theirs.... So chill :p

    But I'm a new Mac user, and I've never upgraded an OS on Mac OS X and considering some of the problems which I have heard about, I'm more than uneasy about buying it now and doing an upgrade (don't have an external).

    So are there any predictions on when 10.6.1 will hit? I really want to get it, because of the apparent speed improvements and obviously to make use of the now 64 bit structure the OS has.

    TIA :cool:

    Looking back at the point release histories on Wikipedia, I'd expect to see 10.6.1 about 2-3 weeks after release of 10.6, so sometime in mid-September would be my guess.

    Yes but if SL really screwed the pooch, I predict sooner.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh ok that's not bad!

    I'm used to having service packs every so often from MS, so this is good news.

    Thanks guys!

    I'd give them 3 weeks. Is Snow Leopard really that unstable for people? Mine has been rock solid so far.

    I agree. I'd be surprised if it's not out by next weekend. If not then, certainly the week after. There's too many obvious issues that people are reporting, for Apple not to have already internally been sorting them out.

    Should be out on 9/9 as iTunes 9 will require 10.6.1. :D

    I, too, would guess that an update would be released within a week or two.

    There are obviously bugs/fixes that need to be updated. For me, the first two restarts with SL have been rather underwhelming. Seems a few seconds faster, apps load slower the first reboot, printer took a few extra minutes to print, and my tokidoki background no longer works.

    I agree, it would make sense to deliver it along with iTunes 9.

    Is iTunes 9 going to be 64 bit on SL?

    Leopard has support for 64bit apps also, you know. but i really hope it is 64 bit and changes ipod disk sizes to base 10 like SL

    Stop. Base 10 is ridiculous.

    Ya, I know that SL has support for 64 bit apps (duh), the point is that iTunes was the most significant native Apple application to NOT get a 64 bit update.

    iTunes would really benefit from 64 bit re-write as it is a bit of a resource hog.

    +1, but make it Cocoa, as well.

    A full cocoa re write of iTunes would be great, but I would just take the 64 bit rewrite now as it would massively boost the performance on iTunes. Probably a 30-50% speed bump right off the bat.

    It's not going 64-bit unless it goes cocoa.
