I did not find this in the forum, so I am posting it here. Apologies if I missed it.

As we all know Snow Leopard is due out tomorrow, August 28. But before upgrading, you may want to check for software compatibility issues. There are several apps I use that will not work on Snow Leopard yet.

Here is a list. Snow Leopard Compatibility list

There's a thread on it up in Apple Rumors and Reports here:

http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/app...atibility.html

It really is a great list, I added a few apps to it this morning (with unknown status since I obviously don't have Snow Leopard yet )

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

Hey Mudbug...thanks a million for posting this thread.

I was just about to post exactly the same thing!...with the same idea as you.

Everyone is super excited about 10.6 (as am I)...but it doesn't make too much sense to immediately upgrade if someone's favorite "work or play" applications are not compatible with 10.6 yet.

Otherwise...someone may be able to "mouse" around with the finder, still be able to surf the internet, get e-mail, and play that darn "chess" game Apple always includes...but not get much work done if their favorite application doesn't work with 10.6.

Thanks again,

- Nick

Interestingly while browsing the compatibility list...I saw that the game Diablo 2 is currently listed as compatible with 10.6.

Wow...a game that was first released in 2000 (with updates along the way) is already compatible with OS 10.6...and then a lot of newer programs still have an "unknown" status.
