Finally! At long last! After a year of waiting, Leopard is here!

I left work early at 2:00 to get a jump on the line. I headed down to the Apple store at Ticeís Corner in New Jersey. To my surprise, all the machines already had Leopard on them. It wasnít for sale until 6 PM, but all the floor models had been updated. The stores were closing from 4-6 to get ready for the launch. I figured that they would be re-imaging the machines during that time. So, I got the chance to play with Leopard. Also to my surprise was the fact that no one was waiting around for it. It was raining outside, so there was no line outside. I wasnít about to start one, or get thrown out for loitering for 4 hours. I figured Iíd be safer (and more comfortable) at the mall. I could grab a cup of coffee and pop a squat out front on the carpet. (Yes, the mall is carpeted.)

Here's me, second in line. I was there for about 3 hours. This pic was taken by one of the employees.
