    I'm getting excited as I'm sure you all are!!!!
    Would it eventually drop in price? By the way I live in Australia where Tiger is currently $129AUD or $199AUD for the family pack. Would this be the case for Leopard?

    EDIT: My bad, those were $US

    Well only the american price was given but it remained at $129USD for Leopard as it is with Tiger so the price will probably remain reasonably constant. May change slightly to accommodate fluctuations in the money markets but will most likely be the same.

    Generally I've noticed that most Apple products retail for the same price in USD as they do in Euros...UK prices will no doubt be higher though!

    Ok, that's good news.

    I'm still relatively new to mac, having made the switch from pc. so i'm wondering, will it work on my imac?
    Is it going to be much more demanding that Tiger?

    It will run absolutely fine on that machine. I noticed a speed increase going from 10.3 to 10.4 and am expecting a further speed increase going to 10.5. Initial reports are saying that it is well optimized and they have fixed certain parts of the OS which typically gave bad performance (network shares in Finder for example)

    Apple almost always retails it's OS for 129$ , and in the keynote they made a joke about it refering to Windows vista that has like 5 versions,

    Applying the conversion rate with the pricing of Leopard at $129 US, it should be about $179 AUS (incl. GST-Tax). Although Australia has a free-trade agreement with the US so we should be able to get it cheaper than this, more than likely 10% less. Who knows...

    Most likely $69 USD as with Tiger
