Backblaze Supports Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard

Apple launched OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard on Friday and not only is it faster and smaller, but also adds a few new features and core services. But for many, the price of just $29 seemed to be the primary reason to upgrade.

So, were these really enough for people to rush out and buy the new OS?

Well, we know that Backblaze customers are early adopters, but considering nearly a quarter of all Backblaze Mac customers have already upgraded to Snow Leopard, it seems Apple’s customers think the new Snow Leopard is a worthwhile upgrade.
