Snow Leopard: How many gigs did you gain?
I've just done the update to the latest version of the Mac OS, 10.6, or Snow Leopard. This svelte update promises to not only be sexier (as always) but to take up less space on your hard drive. The literature says to expect the installation to free up 7 or 8 gigabytes of space. Interestingly, my available space before Snow Leopard was 179 gigs; after the install, it's 202. That's a gain of a whopping 23 gigabytes! At first, I nervously checked to make sure all my files were intact, but nothing is amiss. Anyone else seeing gains like this, or have an idea why this might be?
