Apple Offering MobileMe Users Free DVD Copies of Snow Leopard to Help Move to iCloud

If you’re not on OS X Lion yet, then you are missing out on all the features of iCloud. To encourage and assist Mac users on older versions of OS X, Apple is now providing free DVD copies of Snow Leopard to users that sign into their MobileMe account here, as reported by Macgasm.

The offer is available in Canada as I did test out the MobileMe login myself (my account is part of a family plan). As you can see below, enter in your address and Apple will mail you a DVD copy of Snow Leopard.

The offer is reported to expire on June 15th, 2012, just a mere two weeks away from the permanent shut down of MobileMe. This appears to be Apple’s plan to encourage OS X Leopard users to make the transition from MobileMe to iCloud.

Are you still on OS X Leopard? Let us know if you jump on this offer.
