Snow job

Imagine my shock when, without warning, Snow Leopard 10.6.3 began acting like Windows Vista. Call me naïve, but I do not expect a point upgrade to cause a weird sleep-to-wake glitch, especially when even the Windows web is aflutter about the Mac’s superior power management.

Add to that a login/menu bar oddity. It now takes several extra seconds to replace the default wallpaper with a rotating selection from my iPhoto library, and for some reason the Spaces icon refuses to display the space number until I click on it.

A small price to pay for a virus-free existence, but I subscribe to the broken-windows (no pun intended) philosophy of software development: Quirks tolerated today lead to fundamental design flaws tomorrow.
