Snow Leopard still more popular than Lion
Despite being originally released in 2009, Snow Leopard is still a favourite amongst many Mac users, including many x86 enthusiasts, thanks in part to its stability and optimisations, but also arguably due to a lack of killer features from successive versions of Apple's desktop operating system, not to mention the slow evolution towards a more iOS-like look and feel, which may not be to every Mac user's tastes.
Apple even took the step of re-introducing the boxed copy of Snow Leopard to its Apple Store just a couple of months ago; a move that surprised many given the company's forward-thinking approach of ditching physical distribution of its last two major versions of the Mac OS in favour of digital downloads, let alone reselling an outdated version.
Let us know if you're still sticking with 10.6 or how you feel about 10.7 and 10.8 compared to 10.6. Are Snow Leopard users hindering the progress of Apple's desktop future by creating demand for an outdated OS? Or does Apple need to re-think its desktop OS strategy and analyse why users are sticking with Snow Leopard?
