Here’s a quick tip this morning for those of you who are Mac users and are considering an upgrade to Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. This Wikidot webpage which is updated regularly by Mac users who have updated their systems to Snow Leopard shows you a good long list of compatibility status of many popular apps. Though incompatibility isn’t expected to be a major problem with the new update, it is inevitable therefore Apple have released their own list, but it is much less comprehensive and not as frequently updated.
So if you’re interested in upgrading to Snow Leopard or have already ordered a copy, you might like to check out the list and be more prepared, click here to be directed to the Wikidot page…
While we personally prefer to have both OSs available just in case, for example run Windows 7 on Bootcamp or WMware on our Macs here at GadgetLite. I am sure there are many of you who would prefer to be told which operating system is actually better and get on with it. Just being told and persuaded by your friends that Mac OS X Leopard (or Snow Leopard to come) is far more superior just isn’t good enough, that’s why Lifehacker has done an excellent feature by feature comparison between the two OSs.
We received a few messages from Mac users last week worried about the conflicker worm. While we are not aware that Mac OS X are susceptible to its infection nor are we aware about many viruses that can infect Macs, we believe some of you like some suggestions on choosing a reliable antivirus software / app for Mac OS X.
Avast Antivirus Mac Edition has the same ICSA Certified scan engine as all Avast antivirus products, offering protection against the latest and legacy virus, malware, Trojan horse, and spyware risks. Virus definitions and scanning capabilities are updated often (sometime several times per day, depending on current threats), so you can rest assured that your Mac is protected at all times. All you need to do is install, configure once (if you want to change the default settings) and forget about malware being a problem.
