Downgrade OS X Lion To Snow Leopard [Video How-To]



While OS X Lion is an excellent operating system, it may not be perfect for some people. Since some applications haven’t been updated to run on Lion yet, some users may need to downgrade to Snow Leopard in order to keep using the applications they need on a regular basis. In this video, I’ll show the best ways to downgrade from Lion to Snow Leopard.

Snow Leopard May Not Purr On a New MacBook Air



Did you just get a beautiful, new MacBook Air? Apple’s new notebooks are super-slim, and they work great with OS X Lion.

However, installing Snow Leopard on a 2011 MacBook Air may not go over so well, as Apple’s older cat doesn’t apparently play nice with its newest notebook. Luckily, Apple has published a KnowledgeBase article to help you fix Snow Leopard on your brand new MacBook Air.

OS X Lion Can Be Clean Installed At Boot-Up, No Snow Leopard Required



Apple’s upcoming OS X Lion release is expected to launch tomorrow, and when it does, it will be available exclusively through the Mac App Store. That means you’ll no longer be able to walk into an Apple retail store and purchase the release on DVD.

That’s great for the environment, but it can make recovering your machine a little more difficult. Apple’s new recovery plans for Lion, however, could make the whole process a walk in the park.

Amazon’s Already Selling Out Of Snow Leopard DVDs, Will Apple Print More?



Whether or not OS X Lion shows up on the Mac App Store late next week, as All Things D believes, or on the 26th, as some Apple Store employees belive, one thing’s for sure: it’s coming before the month is out.

So it’s not totally a surprise that Amazon.com is running low on copies of Snow Leopard, having sold out entirely of retail copies of OS X 10.6 on their UK site and only selling it through third-parties on their US site.

What is surprising, at least to us, is that it’s happening so soon. How are people going to upgrade to Lion if it’s impossible to buy Snow Leopard?
