Apple unveiled Mac OS X Snow Leopard at SAN FRANCISCO on June 8, 2009, Snow Leopard is an even more powerful and refined version of the world’s most advanced operating system and the foundation for future Mac innovation.
Snow Leopard builds on a decade of OS X innovation and success with hundreds of refinements, new core technologies, out of the box support for Microsoft Exchange and new accessibility features. Snow Leopard will ship as an upgrade for Mac OS X Leopard users in September 2009.
“We’ve built on the success of Leopard and created an even better experience for our users from installation to shut down,” said Bertrand Serlet, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering.
“Apple engineers have made hundreds of improvements so with Snow Leopard your system is going to feel faster, more responsive and even more reliable than before.”
To create Snow Leopard, Apple engineers focused on perfecting the world’s most advanced operating system, refining 90 percent of the more than 1,000 projects in Mac OS X.
