When Do You Update Your Operating System?

When Do You Update Your Operating System?

We plunked down our $29 for a copy of OS X Snow Leopard this weekend, installing it last night with mixed results. The Finder and other system functions feel faster, but we're experiencing some constipated performance when it comes to Safari and even the fairly benign TextEdit application. We've been tweaking our setup all morning, switching back to Firefox, fixing permissions, and we think we're finally back up to speed, making for one busy Monday morning. Thus is often the case when updating to a new OS (as many Vista users will soon experience with the much anticipated Windows 7), but for us, the tweaking and tinkering is half the fun of owning a computer.
