    I just downloaded/installed the 10.6.3 update. Don't really notice any changes yet.
    Here's the details from Apple's site:

    improve the reliability and compatibility of QuickTime X
    address compatibility issues with OpenGL-based applications
    address an issue that causes background message colors to display incorrectly in Mail
    resolve an issue that prevented files with the # or & characters in their names from opening in Rosetta applications
    resolve an issue that prevented files from copying to Windows file servers
    improve performance of Logic Pro 9 and Main Stage 2 when running in 64-bit mode
    improve sleep and wake reliability when using Bonjour wake on demand
    address a color issue in iMovie with HD content
    improve printing reliability
    resolve issues with recurring events in iCal when connected to an Exchange server
    improve the reliability of 3rd party USB input devices
    fix glowing, stuck, or dark pixels when viewing video from the iMac (Late 2009) built-in iSight camera

    Specs:
    15-inch Early 2008; Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM; 10.7.5
    I actually downloaded the combo update from Apple's website. Stupid question but.. things that aren't needed (redundant stuff) won't be installed right ? I mean, does OS X detect what is needed only ? I did the combo and upon updating it said that it would take up over a gig of space.

    If you think about it from an historical perspective...437.8meg is an absolutely insane update size!

    Even compare that OS update size to the size of some application's sold today...and it's still insanely big for an update.

    How the heck big would the update be if 10.6 was still PPC compatible & still had PPC code in it like 10.5 was...then it would be REALLY BIG!

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Engadget had 757.3 MB when upgrading from 10.6.2 for some reason which is even worse. My guess is that SU was pulling down the combo for their system which doesn't make sense to me.

    Hmmm... my updater likewise pulled down the 757 MB update. My connection is real fast so I thought nothing of it. Anyway, it installed fine and everything seems OK thus far.

    Regards.
