The whole operating system has under gone a subtle redesign with improvements in all areas to make for a quicker, slicker and more productive computing experience. Even simple things like start up and shut down have been improved to reduce waiting times. MacBook and MacBook Pro trackpads that allow two finger gesturing will now allow up to four finger gestures. Snow Leopard also gives you up to 7GB of space back due to it's smaller footprint than it's predecessor Leopard. Leopard gave us over 300 new features, but Snow Leopard improves them to iron out problems and increase productivity. For more information see Apple.
