I have OS X 10.6.8 installed. Is this Leopard, i.e. can I download Snow Leopard from the Apple shop?

  • Best Answer:

    OS 10.6.8 is Snow Leopard.

    The codenames are as follows:

    10.0 = Cheetah
    10.1 = Puma
    10.2 = Panther
    10.3 = Jaguar
    10.4 = Tiger
    10.5 = Leopard
    10.6 = Snow Leopard
    10.7 = Lion

    (Note: only Lion is available as a download... and then only if you already have 10.6.6 or later running on your Mac.)
