Its just an update to the older version of Leopard. No major updates that are absolutely essential. But if you want to do any xcode programming, you will need the latest version of OSX

10.7 is not yet available. There are rumors that it will be released this year but nothing solid yet.

Have you solved your problem. There are a lot website that give a brief introduction on how to use your mac snow leopard

The difference between Leopard (10.5.?) and Snow Leopard (10.6.?) is mostly "under the hood". The user interface was hardly touched, but a lot of the old code (PPC) was replaced and the system was overhauled. There are too many sites that go into detail on the changes, including apple. The two main improvements was the size of the install and the performance of the system.
Lion ,10.7 is the new OS coming out, some say by late spring. They have seeded the first build to select developers for testing. This process can take several months and is the way Apple fine tunes their system. Word is that it will have a lot of the ios 4.? look and feel. Time will tell. Personally I hope not.

Snow Leopard is the current version of the Mac Operating System, being version 10.6. If you are familiar with the previous version, Leopard, you'll see little visible difference, the main changes being to do with code efficiency and required space. When I upgraded from Leopard I found that I had over 2GB extra free disk space. One benefit from this is that applications open quicker (certainly found this with Mail).
The other important thing about Snow Leopard is that you'll need an Intel-based Mac to run it, it isn't compatible with Power PC models.
Version 10.7 (Lion) is due for release in July (latest estimate).
Hope this answers your question.

yeah, i agree with ducksoup. You have to an intel based mac as the processor if an intel core 2 duo

I'm using snow leopad on my new MBA. Honestly, I haven't noticed anything different than older OS. The retailer said the new Apps are faster on Snow Leopad, but I don't think anyone can feel in 99.9% of the time.

Still, it's no worse than its predecessors anyway.

In snow leopard, there are less bugs error thus your applications will not be corrupted easily or not responding.
