    I just got off the phone with an apple service tech she hinted to me that Lion will be released the end of this month or the beginning of next month

    We will see probably a public preview of Lion on the WWDC. This is from an Apple e-mail:

    It makes sense to optimize Lion for Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge. It saves future development costs.

    Snow Leopard took about two weeks after the GM was released for it to ship. I'd say mid to end June at the earliest.

    Apple says Summer.

    I don't recall any company in the Milky Way Galaxy shipping an OS early.

    "I don't recall any company in the Milky Way Galaxy shipping an OS early."

    Early is early and you were wrong.

    I’d say August/Sept is more likely. My best guess is that Apple will release Developer Preview 3 with more features that they will announce at WWDC. After that, bi-weekly seeds until a GM build in August.

    No, I was right. I said, "I don't recall...".

    Obviously I was using hyperbole by saying any company ever in the whole Milky Way. But if you have a broom stick up your pants leg, you'll sign in just to dispute this. Smoke a doobie.

    Sorry but simply saying "I don't recall" does not make what you said correct.

    Smoke a doobie? Sounds like someone's mad.
