I was awaiting the new OS release as much as everyone and couldn't wait till I could recieve Leopard for free with the purchase of a new mac. I noticed a number of people thought the same way. In anticipation of the new OS, people held out and would buy as soon as Leopard came out. As soon as the delayed OS was made known, everyone said "screw it" and have bought, or are going to buy in the near future, the mac they had begun to want. As a result Mac has sold an increase in computers and can expect everyone to purchase Leopard when it comes out in October. I'm sure programers are continueing to work out the bugs in the system, but it seems convenient for Apple that Leopard took longer to develop hat it thought.
