    QT Pro is on the SL disk and was even offered as an installed when I looked at the additional software included. I just plugged in my existing credentials and it worked as before. I now have both QT 10 and QT pro. You just needed to get it off the DVD.

I will be backing up my current system and downgrading as well. I used to be able to edit video easily and very well. It's not so now. I don't know what is involved in downgrading, but I am going to buy a large FireWire 2 external hard drive and back up with TimeMachine for starters.
    What are you on about?
    Safari's always had issues for many users, and is no worse with Snow Leopard, and as for Quicktime Pro, it was never there unless you paid for the upgrade. It was not a freebie with Leopard!
    If you need to install it, read THIS

    By the way, running Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and having no problems... Mac's running like a charm as always

    I just bought SL but I'm leaving it in the car and returning it. I bought it because its $30 bucks and I read that it made it faster (than it already was). I dont wanna get greedy. I've been reading reviews and man.. it sounds like its a 50 / 50 chance it will work as advertised. I have no issues with my macbook so I'm not gonna mess with it. Theanks for the info everyone. Maybe down the road.

    Never had issues with my Mac, and since Snow Leopard, still had no issues other than having more room on my HD.
    I don't know what you've been reading, but just be aware, majority of Mac users, regardless of what OS they are using, you will hear nothing from.
    The reason being, is that they are happy!
    If you are driving a porsche 911 turbo, do you spend your time on forums, or car mag sites talking about it, or just enjoy cruising (racing) along?

    I have no idea -- seriously, NO IDEA -- what the people in the early part of this thread are talking about. Bought SL on day one, installed it on day one, NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER since day one.

    I have to date assisted well over 300 clients in moving to Snow Leopard. NO ISSUES AT ALL.

    Ditto here on my end. Not one issue.

    Only real issues I have heard about that are valid issues were with some 3rd party apps that were not SL compatible. Those have long since been updated.

    Same here, not issues. However, I did a clean install and not an upgrade to the previous OS. I wonder if the upgrade is what is causing some heartache?

    OS X Vista? Wow, someone's a drama queen. The minor annoyances you have faced as a result of upgrading within the first 2 revisions of an OS are things that require power users to find and report. Stop acting like Apple made you skin your knee and you want your old OS back. It's called progress.

    I need to resurrect this post.
    Since upgrading to 10.6.2 I've been having problems accessing my Time Machine backup disk (Freecom Firewire Pro), in that as soon as my mac goes to sleep so does my drive. Now it won't recognise this drive at all, so cannot access my backup.

    Coupled with my Finder thumbnail issues (posted here a few days ago), I need to get back to a proper working OS asap without risk to my data.

    So is there anyway to get back to 10.5 without a clean install?
    Happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get.
