Box vs Box: Snow Leopard Standard vs Snow Leopard Server Edition


Apple’s been gettin’ a good bit of grief for the Snow Leopard box art since it officially went on sale this morning. We’re in the “Who cares? We’re all going to buy it anyway” boat, but we’ve gotta admit it: it sort of looks like it was slapped together at the last minute. By a kid. Oh, and he was wearing a blindfold.

At least, the standard edition does. Check out the box art for the server edition up above – the difference is small, but the results are grand. A bit of cropping and some creative framing, and bam: it’s a whole new box. It’s still not the ominous X we’re used to, but it’s a big step up.

What do you think: Upgrade? Downgrade? Don’t care?
