Apple's Mac OS X v10.6 was released last Friday, and for most of us the
transition from Leopard to Snow Leopard went by without incident.
However, we've spent part of last weekend scouring Apple's discussion
boards and support site for solutions to problems people have been

After installing Snow Leopard on our Macs, the Mac|Life staff began scouring the inner crevices of 10.6 looking for all the features we can.

After spending the weekend with the new OS, we found 100 features, tips, and tricks that should help get you up to speed and make you a Snow Leopard power user.

You’re expecting way too much from what is a really nice but not earthshaking upgrade. You are going to be disappointed.
