There's never enough things cut in half. My favorite books when I was a kid were cutaway books. Everything in the world should be cut in half and put on display. Like this Leopard I tank, the democratic heir to the Panzer and Tiger tanks that made the Wehrmacht famous and the first line of defense against the Soviets.
It has to be really annoying to be in your turf and have all these people come like the pest to take photos of you and leave crap around. If I were this leopard I would have stolen the camera, break it, and then poop on it. But I'm glad he didn't so we could see this wonderful animal up close.
Step 1: Line up 23 Dutch lunatics in the middle of a road. Step 2: Get someone to drive a 62.3-ton Leopard tank at full speed on that road only to activate the emergency brakes just a few meters from the 23 lunatics. There's no step 3.

For the first time, scientists have sequenced the genome of a tiger. And not just any tiger, but a Siberian tiger – the world's largest living felid. The researchers' just-published report includes a comparative analysis of the sequence with those of several other big cats, revealing molecular signatures for…

It's not a completely new OS in name or aesthetic, but the guts of Snow Leopard are radically different enough you may or may not be worried about upgrading right away.
Walt Mosspuppet's take might just be the only Snow Leopard review you need. He even reveals, exclusively, the next revolutionary version of OS X:

Looks like Snow Leopard was indeed blood thirsty. So much that it kills some applications. And not only third-party, like Parallels Desktop or EyeTV, but also Apple's own software, like old versions of Aperture and Keynote. Check the full list:
OS X Snow Leopard seems to do nothing really new. And yet, it could be their most important OS since 10.0.0. Updated the Bad Stuff section.
MacRumors has received what appears to be the final retail packaging for Apple's Mac OS X Snow Leopard. The packaging looks to be the Portuguese version, and if real would imply that the OS has officially entered into mass production.
