    How large of a crowd do we need for that principle to hold? I fear ML may be released before that threshold is met.

    Given the recent vacation blackout dates, I'm going with the 22nd.

    Not if you spell something wrong...

    My guess is that they will release it sometime before August 1st. Anything more specific then that, and you'll have to ask Apple.

    I'm guessing July 22nd, also I think we'll most likely see gold master early July.. As in the past with OSX Lion and Snow Leopard the GM was released a little over two weeks of official release date..

    My guess is July 18th. My reason being, is that same week last year, Apple held it's Q3 2011 Conference on Tuesday, July 19th, and released Lion the following day (July 20th). I think it will be the same situation again. I think that Mountain Lion won't be released until after Apple's Q3 conference, which basing it off of last year will probably be the Tuesday the 17th

    I'm hoping for a surprise from Apple. Something like "it'll be ready on the 3rd, or 13th, or 23rd....or the 3rd"

    I think lion will ship before then, it will allow apple to show its investors how well mountain lion is selling.

    (p.s. My 100th post :). 400 more to go for my avatar XD.)

    Heh, looks like 5 people are already wrong.

    I give it about 3 more weeks. My original guess was July 23, so that fits perfectly.
