    Though unconfirmed, Financialwire.net claims that Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard will be shipping by the end of March "according to sources."

    This date corresponds to an earlier report from ThinkSecret that Leopard development was "wrapping up faster than many at Apple even anticipated". Based on this earlier report, the new versions of iLife '07 and iWork '07 are expected alongside Leopard.

    Even after many false rumors about potential Apple media events, buzz continues about the possibility of a future Apple release event.

    In that case, Leopard is going on my birthday list :D
    Hopefully it will really come out that early. I am really looking forward to these 'secret' features Steve Jobs talked about

    If it's shipping at the end of March, we should see an announcement in 2-3 weeks. I personally think mid to late April is more likely. Tiger was released in April 2005.

    You can file this one right along side the Apple superbowl commercial, the Valentine's day Beatles iTunes launch, the so-called February event (or was it January, I can't remember off hand) as another in the recent spate of totally bogus rumors.

    Leopard no earlier than end of April.

    I just hope that Leopard is noticeably faster on the Intel Macs. 10.4's Intel version feels like a hack :)

    You know, you're right IMO. I thought it was just me. Can't
    wait for Leopard though.

    Why would these guys know better than any of us?

    Even ThinkSecret has more credibility than randomstockfluctuatorsite.net.

    In both cases, I'll believe it when I see it.

    I'm not looking forward to this at all... Too many products launched too close together. Doesn't bode well for the wallet...

    Oh no, that's wrong.

    I have a friend who walks her dog with a guy who works as a cab driver who picked up a Compusa salesperson who overheard him say that Phil Schiller walked into the store and was using iChat on one of the store's iMac's to chat with Jobs and he clearly saw him type "PB G5 2/27/07"

    So its new Powerbook G5's next Tuesday! :)

    I doubt it, but it will probably use Leopard features if they're available... Holding the release until you can make use of all the bell-and-whistles kinda makes sense.

    Award winning!

    Bah, that won't compare to OSXI Voltron.


    Anyway, end of March sounds pretty darn great to me. It also sounds reasonable. Let's hope that this is accurate, and let's hope that we hear something about the "top secret features" within the next week or two!

    I agree. I am stunned at how NOT fast the Intel version is most of the time.
