Broken Machine

OK, so lemme get this straight? A new version OS 10 comes out TODAY and some older software does not work yet for it? DAMMIT, I'm switching to PC.

It's bad enough that I cannot use [] and Garmin's Roadtrip sucks balls compared to the PC version mapsource, let alone that my Primus - Tales from the Punchbowl CD+G disc stopped working when Apple shifted to PPC archetecture, but now we get forced to upgrade to Snow Leopard, as I just must upgrade to the latest OS so I can blog about the install process.

Here's a quick update from my crystal ball:

-Windows 7 released today, software compatibility problems exist

-Mac OS X 10.7 released today, software compatibility problems exist
