    Apple has been rumored to be targeting Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard's release on October 26th. More evidence of that comes from Apple's own online store.

    While Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is not yet available for pre-order from Apple, Apple still sells Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). If you try to order Tiger now, the estimated ship date is coincidentally also October 26th, 2007.

    I think Steve would call this "Premature specification."

    Wow, this is awesome. It's close to the 1st which means I'll have money to buy it. Hopefully it doesn't run sluggish on my aging 2.0GHZ Powermac G5. I am a little bummed that they shrunk the boxes since it'll look a little awkward next to all the other OS boxes.

    Fishes,

    Maybe they're letting you know that Tiger won't ship out until the 26th and then poof, it's gone and you really get Leopard instead!

    what this really means is that you can no longer buy Tiger from the Apple on-line store. I think they do not want to have to handle all the returns where people buying Tiger would send it back after the Leopard announcement.

    Steve said that "premature specification" was the way that one guy inside Apple referred to the leaking of the G5 specs before the 2003 WWDC keynote.

    Yup, it's coming on the 26th. It totally makes sense, it's on a Friday, etc like they usually do. Here comes Leopard!

    More Evidence for October 26th Leopard Target Release?

    I just went to the Apple store and ordered Tiger and the ship date is still within 24 hours of the order date (not october 26th) for whichever distribution center services the Mid-Atlantic States.

    Why, then, does the family pack ship within 24 hours?

    I'm taking this as one of Apple's well known "slips" ;)
