I couldn't take it any more. With every update it just got worse. I ran OS-X Tiger 10.4 for over 2 years without needing so much as a reboot, ever. So with Snow Leopard 10.6.2 release it was the straw that broke the camel's back. Everything was breaking and nothing was stable. With heavy heart I installed Windows 7. I REALLY wanted to install Mint Linux but I was going to need Windows anyway at least in a virtual machine to run more than a handful of Windows apps, so I decided to save myself the virtualbox install and the 8GB virtual machine file and go straight to 7. I feel dirty and shamed. Can I get a hug?
