    Well based on a great post of a friend in here wrlwzrd98, i think he is right on this one, and from the looks of it, its gonna be a crappy a WWDC this year for the Macintosh. But will be a great one for OSX. Well not 100% great, cause we only get a preview/beta version of the "future" (Leopard). Damn it and i was really waiting for great rumoring for this years WWDC.... damn damn damn + ive been waiting so long for new serious MacPro announcements. My situation is not undercontrol but my shrink sais its ok!
    Of course on the other hand, there are a few times when all rumors came true, this time no rumors around so i cant say that a saying doesnt cross my mind, which saying? "no news is good news!"

    Still living with the hope!

    how is it bad for the Mac when it is getting a new OS, if it wasn't for the OS then a lot less people would want them.

    Hold on......we should wait for it to be done, then we can start to complain. I'm sure we'll see some cool updates, there is so much coming down the Apple pipline. iPhone is coming, OS 10.5, updates needed for iMac, Mac Mini and 5G iPod. Plus iLife/iWork.

    Exciting day ahead for Apple fans...

    if you believe in the rumors, you're bound to be disappointed. If you don't, you'll be surprised.

    calm before the storm, perhaps? Steve seems pretty smug about the stuff they're making, and he did say 2007 will be Year of the Mac. Time will certainly tell... about 10 hours, 30 minutes time...

    Perhaps lowering expectations is a good idea, especially if it helps reduce the inevitable bitchfest that follows these events :D

    We finally see our next generation OS in full. There's nothing more important for the Mac platform than that!

    this comes up EVERY year. wwdc is a conference for developers. developers are in my books, programmers. programs = apps = software.

    only 2 topics will be really discussed on the keynote (which is today or on tuesday?). the iPhone + mac os x.5.

    we would be really lucky, if we get something more.

    So we still have 10 more hours of rumoring untill the truth is revealed :D
    It true Steve did say that 2007 is the year of the Mac, so, if so far in 2007 the iPhone came out, then imagine whats gonna be announced for the Mac, if its a Mac year this year! Yeeeehaaaa!
    But 2007 has a long long way until finish, and if anything has to do with the Mac, well, i bet we will see it along with the Leopard release in 2007 fall.
    Rightnow other than grafx card update or a case redesign (most unlikely) i see nothing else new at least for the Pro series. Maybe a black imac? What else for the Mac?

    Actually I'm just gonna enjoy it. I thought the leopard features we saw last year were good, and they were supposed to be the worst ones. So imagine what could come up this year!

    I predict that during the Leopard demonstration, after a while Steve will have several windows open, pretend to get frustrated with the messy desktop, thrown the mouse down, and proceed to use two hands on the display to briefly sort the windows. He will then proceed to navigate with the mouse once again, and say "oh yeah, I forgot. We have new displays that look just like the old except they are multi-touch compatible, as is Leopard when you need it."

    . . . right ?

    every time there is going to people who complain and aren't satisfied. hardly surprising imo.

    I think you lost me.

    The World Wide Developer's Conference will be a disappointment because all they're going to be talking about is the future of the Mac OS. That means the new features of the OS, a demonstration, possibly about ZFS and Sun. All of this is huge if you're a developer.

    It may be a disappointment to you, but that's because you have no idea what you're talking about. ;)

    Well sure, im a customer not a developer, im not intrested in apps, all the apps i need i have on my hands now. So we each have our opinion regarding things, thats why those should be respected. And in my opinion wwdc2007 had not particular intrest, apart from verfifing the long await of a great OS and a very buggy (for windows xp) version of Safari.
    Apple should give us the long awaited updates on MacMinis, iMacs and at least for Steves sake those long, long awaited, Cinema Displays!
    So for me, yeah its been a crappy WWDC this year, sorry if i spoiled it for u guys but we should get more! Go getem Steve!

    As far as I am concerned it was a good Developers Conference. A new ACD does not help developers. Leopard Beta does.

    I agree...Leopard looks great, I'm eagerly waiting for it to launch. iPhone looks nice...3rd party apps, even if they are from Safari is welcomed. And Safari for Windows is a nice shock...hopefully my school will install it, as they already have FF and IE on their PCs
