Normally when the Apple store goes offline its return is met with cheers of Joy for new Apple products but the brief outage this morning didn't bring the chorus of cheers that the actual release of Snow Leopard would. Thankfully Apple did announce the new features of OSX 10.6 that Snow Leopard will ship on August 28th.
Today's a big news day for Apple with their annual WWDC in San Francisco. OS X has been updated to 10.6 and will be called Snow Leopard, which will be offered at an upgrade price of $29 for single users and $49 for a 5-license Family Pack. Users of Snow Leopard will notice a performance increase over previous versions of OS X thanks to increased implementation of 64-bit software that can utilize greater than 4GB of RAM while seeing a net increase of roughly 6GB of storage space thanks to a streamlining of the OS footprint.
