As far as I'm concerned, Snow Leopard is just a version upgrade with no significant speed or functional enhancements that I find useful, just some bells and whistles not worth 25 cents. My biggest gripe: it automatically replaced my perfectly good and recently updated Epson Photo RX620 printer driver with some generic piece of junk driver called Gutenprint 5.2.3, which also trashed my Epson Printer Utility that allowed me to check ink levels, clean printer heads etc. The "print/fax" window in System Preferences does not read ink levels in my all-in-one printer-photo-scanner, simply tells me "supply levels unavailable" and has no cleaning or refreshing functions. I had to go on the Epson web site, download their driver, updater and printer utility again and reinstall them. Now if someone will kindly tell me where the Gutenprint driver is hiding in my computer, I will find it and trash it -- and maybe trash Snow Leopard and go back to my snowless Leopard 10.5.8. Having been a loyal Mac user since my first SE20 decades ago, I am becoming increasingly annoyed at having to pay for version upgrades that provide more problems than benefits. And my question to the developers of this crappy new version is this: Why, if my model Epson printer is not on the list of those supporter by Snow Leopard, did said Snow Leopard force Gutenprint into my computer in the first place???
