    yes you herd me correctly! The eagerly anticipated operating system from the computer juggernauts, Apple inc is now available!

    It has been in the works for a long time and brings many new features that in some cases belittle the previous os,leopard. Marketed as 'The worlds most advance operating system. It's better,faster and easier to use with many refinements advertising its simplicity,its now also more reliable. The apple engineers had a single goal,to make leopard faster,and thats what snow leopard is.

    Exposé is refined and more convenient. It’s now integrated in the Dock, so you can just click and hold an application icon in the Dock and all the windows for that application will unshuffle so you can quickly change to another one.

    open-CL-With graphics processors surpassing speeds of a trillion operations per second, they’re capable of considerably more than just drawing pictures. OpenCL in Snow Leopard is a technology that makes it possible for developers to tap the vast computing power currently in the graphics processor and use it for any application.

    grand central dispatch-More cores, not faster clock speeds, drive performance increases in today’s processors. Grand Central Dispatch takes full advantage by making all of Mac OS X multicore aware and optimising it for allocating tasks across multiple cores and processors. Grand Central Dispatch also makes it much easier for developers to create programs that squeeze every last drop of power from multicore systems.

    More reliable, higher-resolution iChat-Now more people can have high-resolution, 640-by-480-pixel video chats, because the technical requirements are less demanding: You need only one-third the upstream bandwidth previously required — 300 Kbps instead of 900 Kbps. And finally, iChat Theater now offers 640-by-480 resolution, four times greater than before.

    Now I'm just looking forward to iLife10 and more third party applications to come out that take advantage of the new tech in snow leopard.
