    The most current version of SL is 10.6.8. To update, go to  > Software Update.

    You need 10.6.8 to access the App Store and then to download Mountain Lion. But hold on, make sure your computer can run it! I didn't save the link, but I'm sure it won't take too much poking around at apple.com to find the table showing which models will run it.

    Actually, 10.6.6 can access the Mac App Store.

    Apple - OS*X Mountain Lion - Read the technical specifications.

    Thanks for correcting that. I'm only going off what I've read, and I'm quite sure I've seen it as 10.6.8 multiple times and that this is the first time I've read that 10.6.6 had the App Store. I have every confidence in your knowledge, but I wonder why all those other posts were wrong. ??? I did think it was odd that the last update to SL was the first one with access. It would make even more sense if it had been when SL was introduced. That just seems like a pretty big deal to launch that late in an OS "line".

    It wasn't that we were wrong, it's just that you'll have to search to find a 10.6.6 updater. It's just that 10.6.8 is the newest SL version.

    I think most people quote 10.6.8 because that's the most current SL version. But the MAS was introduced via the 10.6.6 update.
