Thanks for your help, solipsim.

I'm really in a bad mood at Apple right now. What I see on my computers is inconsistent with the help I get at the Apple site. Many things are actually different. They goofed with that 10.6.6 upgrade !

I HATE this Mac Apple Store. What a huge piece of crap !

Here's one from 2009:

It's an adobe blog, but the figures come from an independent polling organization, with a sample group of over a thousand professional photographers.

While I suspect the overall numbers are somewhat closer, Adobe really does dominate among professionals. With the apple pricing and most recent shift in Aperture's priorities, I think they've basically given up the pro segment and are shooting for the "prosumer" one...

P.S. Dear Mr Jobs,

when are you going to build a data centre in Australia, to spread the load?

Aperture in US = $79.99
Aperture in Australia = $99.99
$US1 = $A1.004

WTF?????

I delayed updating my 15" spring '10 MBP for a couple of days after reading another user report a kernel panic after updating.

In my case the screen when to solid blue with the spinning gear immediately after the update finished installing. When nothing changed after a few minutes I forced a restart by holding down the power button + the control and command butttong, after which the screen went black and the MBP restarted normally

He has a point, in NZ Aperture is NZ$104.99, which is roughly US/AU$80, and Aussie GST is only 10%. Now I am taking the assumption that even though the NZ Store is run from Aussie that it contains NZ GST.

I have a Mac Pro that is running pretty sluggishly, but no instabilities so far. I might try to go back a couple versions, I had some problems with 10.6.5 I was hoping .6 would fix.

I have this current MBP as well. I'll hold off on 10.6.6 for now!

I updated a week ago. No crashes yet, using Office 2008, 2011, VMware Fusion, iLife apps, Firefox, Safari, just pretty low-key stuff. So far, stable. Just thought I'd add my experience here. As always, I'd recommend folks test their RAM, repair permissions, Disk Utility Repair, etc etc.
