    Mountain Lion was a completely surprising announcement last year on Thursday, 16 February. We are closing in on the one year anniversary of that, so it makes sense that we are getting close to a 10.9 (Lynx? Cougar? Snow Mountain Lion?) announcement.

    Anyone care to wager some guesses on a date? I'm going to say this Thursday, 14 Feb (Happy Valentines everybody! :p)

    I predict another lackluster iOSified update, but one which I will spend $20 on so that I can get spaces back, just like I spend $20 for expose...

    I don't know if Apple would announce it on Valentines day. Maybe wednesday if we're lucky.

    I predict more bitching and moaning about "iOSification".


    DP1 for Lion was released Feb 24th, ML Feb 16th, both Thursdays. The best bets look like 14th or 21st.

    Tomorrow. OS X House Cat. Perhaps System Preferences will be changed to the name 'Settings'. That is all.

    Tomorrow, it has to be tomorrow. Tim cook is speaking at some place tomorrow. Either he will announce it there or apple will do it secretly while everyone is focused on tim cook talking about money...

    Probably not. I don't believe it's going to be next thursday either; it's too close after Sonys PS4 announcement, which would be silly to interfere with.

    July

    The Haswell lineup will come at or shortly before 10.9.

    Probably, but I doubt Apple will announce 10.9 at the same time of release.

    I doubt they'd mind being upstaged by the PS4 as they are completely different products. Plus, OS X isn't really one of Apple's flagship products any more. If they wanted attention for the DP release, they'd hold a proper event.

    I don't recall any fanfare last year when it was released. Just a PR statement from Apple.

    Of course it is one of Apples flagship products. At least they want some "free" PR for it, which wouldn't be the case if PS4 was stealing all the attention at every tech site.
