what is the correct upgrade path from OS version 10.6.3 can i upgrade to the most current directly or do i need to do incremental updates?
once you update to 10.6.6 (preferably 10.6.8) to get access to the app store you can jump right to 10.8 assuming your mac meets the technical requirements.
The upgrade path is straight to Mac OS X 10.6.8 with the combo updater, and then if your system is compatible, 10.7.5 or 10.8.3, both of which are paid upgrades. You don't need to get 10.7.5 to get 10.8.3.
