LOL...I'm tempted to make a joke along the lines of anyone who buys a Mac before Monday is clearly insane, because the next OS X will obviously be released at WWDC, but I'll let you off easy this time. ;)

Here is a history of dates:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X_history#Releases

Wikipedia said:
Apple released Mac OS X Server 1.0, in January 1999. A public beta of Mac OS X was released in 2000 and March 24, 2001, saw the full and official release of Mac OS X version 10.0. Version 10.1 shipped around September 25, 2001, followed by the August 24, 2002 release of Mac OS X 10.2 ("Jaguar") and the October 24, 2003 release of Mac OS X 10.3 ("Panther"). Apple released Mac OS X 10.4 ("Tiger") on April 29, 2005 at 6:00 PM, with launch events at all 105 of their worldwide retail stores. It was estimated that each store held at least 1000 copies of Tiger in stock, with the flagship stores, such as the SoHo store in Manhattan carrying at least 5000 copies of the operating system.

Then it looks like you've been very well educated, iBunny. Leopard will be out, according to Stevie Boy's WWDC announcement, late 2006/early 2007. It looks like we'll have to muddle on with Tiger for a little while longer... ;)

It would seem that Leopard will be needed to assist with the transition to Intel. Guess that the old Panther developers are hard at work with Leopard.

I think that Tiger is doing the major work for the transition to Intel. Most of Tiger's improvements were making for extensive and clean APIs with a maximum of hardware abstraction for programmers. Looking in hindsight, one could conjecture that this was intended to make an architecture switch and avoid a developer mutiny.

With Tiger's API's only Apple should have to worry about the changes in architecture. The developers should mostly just have to recompile and have everything working as normal. Nice.

At least this means all discussion of MacOS X Liger is thankfully tabled at least until 10.6, by which time, hopefully, all the Napolean Dynamiters will have long since forgotten about the movie. :D
