Rumor has it that if you want to keep experimenting with your Leopard Netbook, you should avoid the 10.6.2 update.
Its an interesting addition to 10.6.2. You’d think that fixing the bug that caused user data loss would be enough for one build.
But perhaps Apple has plans for its own netbook, or more likely, doesn’t want any alternatives to compete with its putative upcoming tablet.
Mac OS X Leopard 10.6.2 will break your hackintosh. The forthcoming OS update will not run on the Intel Atom processor, a rather petty move from Apple which, if true, will break many netbooks which have been hacked to run as more than passable Macs.
Hackintosh lovers rest easy: the removal of Atom support from Mac OS X 10.6.2 may just have been a temporary glitch. And there’s news of more fixes that apply to the rest of us.
Despite reports to the contrary, current Mac OS X 10.6.2 Snow Leopard builds do not support the Intel Atom processor.
Snow Leopard users are once again free to run the Apple operating system on hardware with Atom processors, courtesy of hackers in Russia.
