Default Netbooks, Atom and Snow Leopard - apple bug report... - 11-11-2009, 03:21 PM


This probably won't go anywhere, but I have raised a bug report with Apple asking for Atom support to return to Snow Leopard ( )

You can see it on OpenRadar. (here )

I encourage you to do the same, at least where you have a developer account - I think it may be required to lodge a report.

Can't go anywhere positive. They explicitly don't support the Atom so all you've done is files a bug tagging yourself as breaking the EULA. My bet is if people regularly start filing bugs against unsupported configurations it will force them to militantly block those configs.

I would discourage people who've broken the OSX EULA from harassing apple with reports on hardware they don't support, I think its just creating a lightning rod that will get the Atom zapped.
