Snow leopard should work, it comes with a wxWidgets pre-installed.
Some bugs are in pre-installed version, something with the file selector,
but most of Observer should work, it is what I have been test with.

Printing in wxWidgets, can be easy when it works out of box, and very
hard when it doesn't.
Do printing work on the mac in wx:demo()?

Good calls, will see what I can do, as always gui stuff have the least

I'm poking around when I have time, right now anyway.

Patches are always welcome :-)
