Thank you Apple!

In attemping to ungrade to snow leopard, the process failed horribly. Thankfully, I backed everything up prior by using Carbon Copy Cloner because Time Machine doesn't work for me. I had suspected that my system had issues. Thankfully Apple knew my system was beyond repair (ok, they probably didn't know) and refused to upgrade my MacBook. They instead coerced me to reinstall fresh from 10.5 and THEN upgrade to snow leopard. Even though it was a time consuming PITA, it was probably the best solution.

The results are positive thus far. Seems quicker. I can't attribute that to the fresh install or upgrade though. Built in Cisco VPN client is nice. Haven't tried Time Machine yet to see if I gain that functionality. Safari is fast and stable and so far all my apps continue to work.

All in all its been good. The upgrade sucked eggs. If I were Joe-user, I'd be super-p!ssed since Macs are just supposed to work. I am at least technical and can at least RTFM and work my way out of it. Ole Joe will probably have to go see a "genius".
