    You mean right now, with the developer beta?

    SL is still awhile away, and then most apps will have caught up to it, if not at least by the end of the year.

    If they all work in Tiger, then there's a 99.99% chance they will work (and most I know are working) in Leopard, therefore they will be able to run in Snow Leopard no problem.

    While they may not take advantage of all of (Snow) Leopard's features, they will still run just fine.

    You can do your own research for every little third party app to see if the developers have any notes on Leopard compatibility.

    If they work in Leopard the work in Snow Leopard. Do some research to see if they work in leopard.
    BTW why DiVX and Media PLayer and VLC? VLC plays anything on t eh face of the earth.

    If it doesn't work on Snow Leopard as soon as it comes out, it'll be updated within a month. Don't sweat it.

    I can certify that 2, 4, 8, 12, 19, and 20 work on Leopard. I do have to ask, though, why you would use AIM instead of iChat or Adium. You shouldn't need both Flip4Mac and Windows Media Player, and Stuffit Deluxe is a program best forgotten. I've certainly done my best to repress those painful memories.

    Anyone who still uses the .sit format these days should be shot. .sitx is even worse.

    No. Leopard removed support for certain very old protocols. Some apps that work ok in Tiger does not work in Leopard or SL.

    I use AIM because it is basic and thats what I started off using before I knew about iChat so I just stuck with AIM. What would make me want to switch to iChat instead of using AIM?

    Yes.

    I use The Unarchiver. It's free, and not a resource hog like StuffIt.

    I don't know. I don't use iChat either.

    FYI, VLC is a terrible media player, as it was never intended to be a media player in the first place.

    Yes, but the libdvdcss libraries included in VLC are useful to get the most of other Apps, such as the most recent version of Handbrake.

    (plus it's free and it's open source, if that whets your whistle).

    Internet Cleanup 5 crashes OS 10.5 continually

    Date: 2009-09-12: Internet Cleanup 5 started crashing my 2009 MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard 10.6 from the first time I loaded it three weeks ago, to present. Recommend don't put it on your machine running 10.6. It will drive you up the wall.


    (Previous internet Cleanup versions I ran on older Mac operating systems didn't cause problems.)


    Also, when Apple loads updates, such as to itunes and OS, when I restart the machine it says some software is incompatible.
