    I'm a little concerned about your comment about using time-machine to backup the OS. Are you saying that via time-machine one would be able to 'undo' a snow leopard upgrade? Or are you only saying that one should always backup their personal files before doing an upgrade? It sounded like the former but I suspect the latter.

      Time Machine backs up everything -- that's why you can do a full restore of a hard drive that fails. So your system is in there and everything. Theoretically, you would be able to restore a blank drive to your computer's state from before your upgrade. I'm not sure if Apple will put something in there to prevent such a drastic restore, I don't see why they would.
      Why are you concerned? This could be a good thing in an extreme situation. Or just something you never use.

    The question... yes, Snow Leopard is out next month and the majority of consumers - that is people outside America - still don't know how much it will cost. I am in the UK so hoping it will be £20 but knowing how we in the UK pay over the top prices, it will likely be £25 ($41) at least.
