    Looks Like We Have A Silent Golden Master Already In Production

    Looking like the final candidate has left the building.

    Nothing new. Appleinsider just wrapped up old rumors and told us what we already know.

    Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard 'Finalized'?

    [​IMG]

    According to a source of AppleInsider, Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is "finalized" and support staff have been provided Leopard-related training materials.

    The last publicly available Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard seed (9A559) was released to developers on September 21st, 2007. There is no word whether or not this seed represents the "Gold Master".

    Apple has previously announced that Leopard will be shipping in October, but no official release date has yet been set. Circulating rumors have pegged October 26th as the likely date for the launch.

    Do they normally announce the final version is available the days it ships, or will they have another keynote showing off the final version?

    Nice.

    I think I will wait a couple weeks though personally before installing.

    Or a couple of minutes if photoshop cs 3 is fine with it.



    they will prob. announce store events on day X later this month.

    Sweet. Still haven't decided if I will buy it on release day, if I don't I will wait until 10.5.1.

    Well, if it's not "finalized" by now, it'd be a bit late for an October release.

    Oh, how I want 10.5. My life at work will be so much easier. I will basically be getting rid of any need for Win XP.

    A Finalized Golden Master will be great. The next few weeks will be full of sleepless nights.:D

    I hope the Apple website is updated with all the details of any features they still have close to the vest.

    Any idea on what the EDU pricing will be? It seems like they have raised their software prices (iWork and iLife now cost $71 not $49) - do you think this will continue with 10.5?
