I picked up a copy of Snow Leopard yesterday to update my various computers. We have two Mac laptops (one mine and one Lura's), I have a Mac desktop at home, and I have my home automation server a Mac Mini.
Now, while both my laptop and home desktop are Mac's, I run bootcamp and actually boot them into Vista 99.9% of the time. Part of my argument has always been the tie to Exchange server that permeates my life.
When I got home I updated Lura's Mac laptop that's actually a Mac. I updated my Mac laptop that's actually a PC. Then I updated my Mac Desktop that's actually a PC. I haven't yet update my home automation server that's a Mac (and actually a Mac).
Then I was eaten by a Snow Leopard. My Desktop Mac now only runs about 5 minutes as a Mac before it freezes and dies. Thankfully it runs long enough to get into the bootcamp app so I can set it to boot into Vista. Not what I was hoping for.
I had better luck with my Mac Laptop that's really a PC. My laptop can stay in Mac mode seemingly indefinitely which seems like a good thing for an OS. While in Mac mode I have been playing with the Exchange Integration with Mail, Contacts and Calendar. It seems to work really well. I may give it a try to see where it goes.
I wanted to write this blog post so I booted back to Vista so I could use Words blog post editor. I'm not sure this is going to be easy.
