    I am fairly new to Macs. Bought a early 2008 MacPro. Here is my question. What is the possibility that the software that I bought for my Mac to work with Snow Leopard? I know that Disk Warrior had a long wait to get it working with Leopard. Is this a common problem from older versions of OSX like Tiger to Leopard? I am not talking about any specific program, just programs in general.

    Good possibility

    I've seen plenty of smaller developers already adding support for 10.6 beta. They'll likely have almost two months to prepare their apps for the final release so there's little worry.

    It's a MAC PRO. I'm sure it can handle any OS that Apple can throw at it.

    It's not the OS I am worried about, it's other programs. I do LOVE my Mac :D

    You can always partition your hard drive and install the new OS on the new partition to test it out. :)

    It's been the standard operating procedure in the retail software business . . . new OS version = sales opportunity for software & hardware vendors when users are compelled, either by feature sets or incompatibility, to upgrade. :D
