  1. THIS is why we WAIT for a few point updates before jumping in and doing major system upgrades!!!

    I ALSO just odered my Vectorworks 2010 Upgrade today, which ALSO just had it’s first service pack 1 … Cheeses, I loathe the term .. . It makes me think of Fudge Pack and Microsoft… Which really DO go together!!!

  2. Basically, 10.6 has been very good for me, just some minor irritations that seldom repeat.

    I think 10.6 must have had a lot more under the hood stuff than we realized.

    Compare it to a Windows upgrade.

    We have a lot less drama. Irritations, yes, but things still work.
