Will you be upgrading to Snow Leopard this summer?

That's what summers are for, right? Upgrades, rollouts, cleanups, fixes, and other big IT projects. No kids/teachers = lots of productivity. So just in time for summer comes Apple's Snow Leopard, aka OS X 10.6. This isn't expected to be anything really revolutionary in Snow Leopard; rather, it adds quite a few enhancements, takes advantage of new hardware (e.g., hybrid graphics), and tightens up security.

Apple Insider just featured an article on new ways of handling text within 10.6, including enhanced system-wide spell check. A few additional features are located here.

Assuming we're looking at $80 a seat for the upgrade (this is probably optimistic, but not a bad starting point), is it worth it to you? Obviously, for new hardware purchases, it looks like a no-brainer, but do you need native 64-bit support?

Talk back and take the survey to let us know.
