    It will probably be a year and a half to two years before the next update come out. Maybe Macworld 07, or something like that.

    It'll be 18 months away at least – and as Apple have said they're looking to slow down the rate of major point releases I dare say you'll have to wait a little longer than that.

    LOL...I'm tempted to make a joke along the lines of anyone who buys a Mac before Monday is clearly insane, because the next OS X will obviously be released at WWDC, but I'll let you off easy this time. ;)

    Here is a history of dates:

    10.5 and PB G6

    I am sure that OSX 10.5 will be released the same day PowerBooks G6 are released... (ah, and when will that be???)

    ;)

    Then it looks like you've been very well educated, iBunny. Leopard will be out, according to Stevie Boy's WWDC announcement, late 2006/early 2007. It looks like we'll have to muddle on with Tiger for a little while longer... ;)

    It would seem that Leopard will be needed to assist with the transition to Intel. Guess that the old Panther developers are hard at work with Leopard.

    I think that Tiger is doing the major work for the transition to Intel. Most of Tiger's improvements were making for extensive and clean APIs with a maximum of hardware abstraction for programmers. Looking in hindsight, one could conjecture that this was intended to make an architecture switch and avoid a developer mutiny.

    With Tiger's API's only Apple should have to worry about the changes in architecture. The developers should mostly just have to recompile and have everything working as normal. Nice.

    At least this means all discussion of MacOS X Liger is thankfully tabled at least until 10.6, by which time, hopefully, all the Napolean Dynamiters will have long since forgotten about the movie. :D
