There's a little bit of a concern that interest might be lower than it was in Tiger, and that the numbers might not match up.

Haven't we heard otherwise?

The real bottom line is that it doesn't matter very much. Apple's real business is hardware, which we can see by even the most bullish estimate of Apple's gross income from Leopard upgrade sales. What Leopard may do is goose Mac sales, because Leopard is what people will see running on Macs when they go into an Apple store or dealer. Sales of new Macs running Leopard won't show up on the Leopard side of the ledger.

Could News Get Any Better?
The announcement of a small form factor notebook (ie 12" PBish) would do it for me :D BUT, I won't expect it and am quite content with Leopard.
