I was running Leopard which is super bloatware. Prior to selling the iMac I upgraded to Snow Leopard

Sadly Leopard was not Apple's best OS X release, and it really took more dot releases to get stable than any before it. Snow Leopard has lots of promise, but it is too early to dive into it for serious work. It is the transition to full 64 bit, and a lot of apps need revving as would be expected.

I'm happily using Tiger on all 3 of my Macs (wife is happy with Leopard). A new (used) intel arriving soon... i'll immediately jump that over Leopard to Snow Leopard.

Awww ,how can we pick on something so new ?

Indeed. Anything as big as an OS can not truly get tested until it is in general distribution... it should be given at least a couple dot releases before it is judged and the ap developers need to get a chance to rev their stuff.

Even better... get an Intel Mac with VMWare and you can run OS X, Windows 7 (and Vista, XP, et all, even DOS), Linux, Solaris, BeOs.... all at the same time (lotsa RAM needed if you get carried away).

I'd need more monitors and vidcards to run one OS in each :D

Cheers!

Just need one of the new 27" iMacs + an external 30 (expect a 27 soon -- the 30 is getting long of leg)... room for 4 1280x1024 windows side-by-side with room to spare on the bottom.

Yeah.... Snow Leopard worked a lot better, ran faster and lost a lot of fat.

Is Mac's OS10, Linux based?

Snow Leopard has 3 distinguishing features

0/ Apple, realizing that OS X was suffering from too much "renovation" and add-ons and instead of adding new features went under the hood and rewrote most of the OS, shrinking & optimizing huge swaths of code.
1/ full 64 bit (with no loss of support of 32-bit apps), with full support for multi-threading and multiple processors
2/ Completely lost support of legacy PowerPC machines (shedding a very large amount of bulk). It will still run many PPC aps but you have to install Rosetta, which by default is not installed.

Enhanced FreeBSD with a Mach kernal. Completely accessible from the terminal ap, or you can boot into a shell (Finder (with Quartz) are the standard shell)

DRM is alive and well
 
Remember when Vista came out, there was quite a storm regarding the evil DRM built into the OS.

Guess what, it's still there!
