Installation Has Been Renovated and Simplified
The first improvement you'll actually see is in the upgrade process. There are no more Clean Install or Erase and Install options.
Snow Leopard intelligently installs "in-place," which means much less time transferring and restoring files. If problems are detected with existing applications, the installer will tell you.
Although you might think the oppositeupgrading to Snow Leopard will free up some disk space. After the install you should get back at least 7 GB.
If you have a big drive, that number might not seem like a lot, but it shows how well Apple refined its OS.
