Snow Leopard arrives

30 08 2009

Just received my copy of the apples latest OS Snow Leopard

SnowLeopardThere was a lot of expectation for this OS , as its making in competetion with the MS windows 7. So was eager to see what it hold and started with started up the DVD. Well i was disappointed with this build.

  • Installation was pretty simple , Just a confirmation is asked and the process starts. First the open applications are closed and the installtion takes 50 mins to complete. Then started the computer and there were few thinks that i liked       >The new OS ran on my setting and nothing was changed except for the logon screen wallpaper all other setting were same.

>The Stacks are made scrollable , which is a pretty cool featur.

>Quicktime is now more powerful than ever. Starting with the cool borderless player , its also able to record videos , record screen , edit movies on the fly

>Realtime Icon preview, Icons can be resized in realtime and the content of the file can be viewed , even the movies can be played as they are icons. This is a neat feature for people with loads of files .

> Considerable faster application loading.

Even though theres loads of improvement , the main feature i was looking out for in this build was the exchange support. I not been able to configure the Exchange . Even the import mailbox option does not do good work in importing the mailbox from my other mail clients. Never expected such a failure from something which was advertised as the main achievement of this build .

What problems i faced after installing snow leopard

> amsn not supported in this build and it crashes.

>Yet to figure out a way to connect to exchange.

>Webcam was not detected after the install.

Some how there is no backward compatibility for amsn . it works fine with leopard but crashes on start with snow leopard. Next is the webcam . Was in for a complete surprise when the ichat couldn’t detect the webcam. At last had to reset the mac to enable cam again

To Reset the mac

>Switch off the mac

> press Shift+Alt+Control+power button  just once

> wait for 5 seconds and then power up the mac

Overall its a good build  if you are not expecting for the exchange support.
