    Here is a list of link to a site that critiques a screenshot of Leopard from Apple's website:

    Critique of a Leopard Screenshot that Apple Provided

    If you have links and/or interesting information please use this thread to share it with us.

    Edit: I removed some of the links due to the fact that Apple probably doesn't want them exposed.

    Count me in. Can't wait to go and get the box, crack it open whilst eating some lunch, read the little "welcome to leopard" book (I hope they include it, I have"Welcome to Panther" and "Welcome to Tiger" and I really want "Welcome to Leopard."

    Then the installation, unchecking all those languages and drivers, watching it rip through the installation in sweet-bugger-all time and then, THE MOVIE!!

    Then all the goodies:

    Looking at the new included wallpapers
    Invoking Spaces and ripping around the virtual desktops
    Deleting something just to do the cool Time Machine thing (my father will be watching this - he's gonna flip when he sees what it can do)
    Can't wait to make a few widgets from my favourite websites

    Oh man, so much to look forward to, and only $199 for the single license, so much cheaper than Vista's gonna be.

    Time Machine is going to be so awesome. I also am extremely anxious to delete something just to recover it with Time Machine. :)

    Um, yeah, why? Jaguar and Panther were the same.

    Single License = $199 (edu $129)
    Family Pack = $299

    Just to clarify, Chundles is talking Australian Dollars.

    Leopard will most likely be US$129 retail.

    Look at his location, fool. The likely price in America is gonna be $129.

    And don't go deleting stuff as soon as you boot into Leopard - you won't be able to recover them. Time Machine only makes snapshots once a day, so wait until the next day before you go on a foolish deleting frenzy.

    I would say $129.99 (USD), or the same that every previous version has been.

    Either way, analysts are expecting the following for Vista for pricing...
    Vista Home Basic (Upgrade) - $100
    Vista Home Basic (Full) - $200
    Vista Home Premium (Upgrade) - $200
    Vista Home Premium (Full) - $300
    Vista Business (Upgrade) - $300
    Vista Business (Full) - $400
    Vista Enterprise (Upgrade) - $400
    Vista Enterprise (Full) - $500
    Vista Ultimate (Upgrade) - $500
    Vista Ultimate (Full) - $600

    That being the case, if someone were to upgrade and have access to Aero (the new Vista UI), then they would need to pay a $200 minimum for the upgrade version of Home Premium.

    What?!? Come on this is MacRumors!
    This is our bread and butter.
    Spill the links.
    Just put --spoilers next to them.

    Fine. Be that way.

    Sorry for the confusion, I've vowed to stop converting prices to US dollars so I just use the prices I'll have to pay.

    You can use Time Machine to back up your stuff before you install Leopard - it's part of the installation process so if it works properly you can delete something then revert to the file that was there when you updated to Leopard.

    good discovery.
    i would also be disappointed if apple couldnt at least have the date update itself in the dock without the program running
    Jul 17th gets pretty annoying

    Acid search can do that.
    But the fact that Apple is adding it is good.

    :confused: :confused: :confused: same here! I think someone wasn't a little down to Earth that day if it is a fake screenshot. Heck, I dunno, maybe the Dock has a new customizable feature called "Hide the 'running' arrow on *insert program here* " . :rolleyes: :p I dunno, it's a possibility...

    The date on the icon for iCal is July 17. The same date that iCal shows when it is not running.

    So iCal is running, but not in the dock?
    Also, the "Info" button is blue. If it's blue that means that the info draw should be visible. But it's not.
