I've been reading a lot of posts with people having problems with the OSX 10.6.4 update. I realize reading help forums, you're getting a very unbalanced sample pool of people, but I just wanted to ask and see if for the most part (for the majority of users) the 10.6.4 update is perfectly fine, stable, routine, and won't give me any problems. I have a 2010 Macbook Pro running 10.6.3

It's perfectly fine for me but I have seen some people having some issues, particularly with Steam.

Updated when I was updating iTunes to 9.2 (didn't even know 10.6.4 was out) and haven't had any issues with it thus far..

No Issues ... works like a dream. ( as always. )

I just installed the update on Sunday...It came up automatically...I thought you were supposed to install these updates as they addressed small issues along the way...? Are they optional...? and why wouldn't you install...? BTW I installed at shut down and have not rebooted since...so do not have any feedback.

I had major problems:
After I installed it, it prompted me to re-start my computer. When I did, I only got as far as the startup screen with the Apple logo and spinning gear. It would open to the desktop.

I called Apple and the tech recommended to re-install the OS from the restore disk (using the default archive & install). I did, but still couldn't get past the startup screen. He next had me use the disk utility to check the HD---no known problems there. Next he had we re-set the PRAM. I did, but it still didn't fix the problem.

Next he told me to bring it in for repair.

I was using a 13" unibody macbook with the previous Snow Leopard version.
