    Ok so Snow Leopard is going to be out this September

    and its 64bit, and the upgrade price is very very fair, which poses one question, is it going to be cool upgrading from the 32bit leopard 10.5.7 to a 64bit snow leopard?

    windows throws a fit when you try to do that, you simply cannot upgrade from a 32bit os to a 64bit os.

    Isn't Leopard already 64 bit (just not 64 bit from the ground up)

    but you shouldn't have trouble; this isn't windows.

    Kernel vs. addressing.

    You've been able to put more than 4 GB of RAM in a Mac for ages though.

    And even Jaguar had enough 64-bit goodness to run on the PowerMac G5.
