Whereas I’m assured after I say that Snow Leopard is probably the most steady model of Mac OS, I wished to ensure its consumer interface was actually the nice consumer interface and expertise I used to be remembering. So, after a couple of irritating makes an attempt at making a digital machine on my present iMac with Mac OS Excessive Sierra, I made a decision to put in Snow Leopard on a USB flash drive, and boot my 2009 MacBook Professional (sure, it’s nonetheless alive & kicking) in Snow Leopard from that flash drive.
