    I just stop answering the posts. We can do that, right? Kinda like newb, newb, oh.. interesting, newb, newb. Apple has been pushing more and more for internal support so let them deal with it:)

    "It's interesting that you haven't updated past 10.6.2 though"

    I was thinking the same thing. LOL

    He better update soon because he's beginning to take too much heat for running that OLD version!

    LOL, Brody, much as I agree with the sentiment you have expressed, you really don't do much for your credibility to say how the update isn't going to kill anything while at the same time refusing to update yourself. If, as you say, a well-maintained system with no hardware problems has nothing to fear, what are you afraid of?

    Note that there's more than just bug fixes and minor features you're missing out on... there are also numerous security patches, and the number of trojans that quarantine protects you from in 10.6.7 is double what 10.6.2 protects against! I'm sure you're aware of this, but the folks reading may not be.

    You're posting here, and not getting paid for it... you've got the luxury of at least some time. If you didn't, you wouldn't be here.

    All my software works fine with 10.6.2.
    I don't have the time to write over 50 developers if the software has been updated.
    I barely have time to help people here.
    If someone paid me to upgrade, I'd be happy to.

    Yes, but you shouldn't you have 10.6.7 on at least 1 volume of one of your zillion disks (and i'm not including the one in the safe), so when an issue comes up here you can test it for yourself to see if it's a bug or an issue in the users system?
