I was being a bit hyperbolic. As I said, I've bought SL and by all accounts it's a solid technological improvement. And I'm hoping it fixes some flakiness that's developed in 10.5 on my MBP. But Snow Leopard will feel worthwhile when apps take advantage of its new features. Until then, it does feel a bit like my auto mechanic telling me that, for a nominal fee, he's going to change all the nuts and bolts from English to Metric hardware; and make the gas tank a gallon larger. Sure, I won't notice any of it right now, but really the car will be easier to service in a few years.
And finally, sounds like the CS3 situation was totally overblown by Adobe. MacRumours reports
that "the Photoshop team has tested Photoshop CS3 on Snow Leopard, and to the best of our knowledge, PS CS3 works fine on Snow Leopard".We're still waiting to hear about the other 80% of CS3: Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, and Dreamweaver.
