Look at the banner at the top...

Mac OS X Leopard: Introducing Vista 2.0

Click Me! (http://static.flickr.com/74/207241438_7c0f89412d_b.jpg)

I love apples approach..

EDIT: After reading some of the comments from the digg headline (where i got the link from), some people are saying that it DOES NOT say Vista. I think it does, Because it reminded me when Apple did the same thing when they were introducing Tiger 10.4 (http://static.flickr.com/52/145283577_8641f40ec5.jpg)

A matter of time before they have to take that down. But it's funny nonetheless. Way to go Apple.

Why exactly would they have to take it down....??? :confused:

Because Microsoft won't be too exited about Apple making fun of an OS they have spent years developing.

Look at the second link in my OP. Microsoft didnt do it then, and I dont think they'll do it now.

I tried to look at your link, but it doesn't seem to work. It just goes to a nonexistent server called Click%20me!.

It definitely says Vista.

Yeah, I do think you have a point. If this turns out to be true - it'll just be further proof that Apple knows it's ahead of the game, and wants to market itself that way.

We'll just have to wait and see what's new in Leopard first, but I really like the idea of directly bashing Microsoft in this way like they did at the last WWDC.

I think it says "Vista" for the simple reason that I can't think of any other logical thing it might say.

I think Apple thinks Tiger is better than Vista (and they're probably right), so that doesn't necessarily mean anything big from Leopard. I hope Leopard is a big release, but I'm worried that we know NOTHING about it yet... That could mean Apple was especially secretive this time around (real possibility, because they know Microsoft is watching) or it could mean there is nothing really major to know.

You know what, you're right. I suspect that Apple's just being even more secretive than usual just because Microsoft's watching them closely, and we'll all be pleasantly surprised come the official unveiling of Leopard. I'd be willing to bet that there will be enhancement(s) to Spotlight... it's really cool, but it isn't perfect. For example, building complex queries is harder than it needs to be.

It has to say Vista. I don't know of any other words that begin with "Vi", end with "a" and would fit in that context.

Well if Microsoft wants, they are more than free to make a banner that says Windows Vista: Now Introducing Mac OS 10.3 :p

A very ballsy banner to be sure. I just hope Apple have the balls to back it up. I think they need to pull something out the bag with Leopard if they're to continue growing their market share after Vista arrives given that using Intel chips is causing more and more people to draw like-for-like comparisons between the two OS's.

I was unimpressed with the MacBooks and, so far, with the *cough*PowerBooks*cough* MacBook Pro's. Is the innovation still there? I think I'm going to explode before I find out!

Vista = 10.3? Uh, uh! 10.0 more like! :D

As for Apple being ahead of the game, I don't think so. It's more a case of Microsoft being behind the game...

Okay okay okay, people, I take it back. But still, Bill should be kinda pissed when he sees the banner. Poor geek.

if thats all that they have up, its nothing compared to Tiger's preview.

banners saying "Redmond start your copiers" and such.

I love this...makes me laugh deep down inside. I'd like it more if Microsoft elicited some sort of response to this. Shows insecurity :p ;)

that is excellent.

and i'm quite sure apple did their legal work ahead of time to be sure they could keep it up without worry.

According to AI, there are other similar banners.

One of the referenced ones reportedly says: "Mac OS X Leopard -- Hasta la Vista, Vista"

Here's a link to the article (with some crappy pictures): http://appleinsider.com/article.php?id=1942

Apple does have some balls...:p

Do we need to be regressing into the age old Windows bashing. Vista is decent and is definately not 10.0, is better than 10.3, and System 7???? This thread is veering off the topic about being what the banner says.

Sorry but from all the 'new' features I've read Vista is nothing more than a WinXP SP3+ with new features. Firewall has been updated. I'm already running IE v7 Beta3 which is gonna get released fullblown on both systems as well as my WMPv11beta - which sucks btw. icons that are animated is a nice touch but nothing that couldnt be updated in a service pack for WinXP; Vista does require more system resources & computing HW than WinXP. but nothing entirely innovative or SUPREMELY a must upgrade. Windows Server 2007 beta 2 now that I'm looking forward to as it'll force my favourite Canadian company; RIM to update their BlackBerry Enterprise Server big time.
