I've seen one too many reports on the Leopard delay. Too many people complaining about Apple abondoning the computer; yet this is furthest from thr truth. So it's my turn to rant! iPhone, Apple TV, and Mac are software marvels. You are not seeing Apple abonding computers, you are in fact seeing Apple putting computers in your pocket and in your living room. It is something the largest rival, Microsoft, has been trying to do for several years. What Microsoft did with Windows, then Windows CE/Embedded/Mobile/etc. is what you're seeing today with OS X, Apple style. So the delay I would say is good for OS X because these devices and computers will share the same foundation. It is extremely clear that OS X is what Apple is all about. But onto another thing I think many people have either ignored or forgotten. Apple is still stuck in a transition period. Two of the largest software suites, besides OS X Intel, are still in development or have just been shipped. Adobe CS3 and Microsoft Office will greatly boost Intel Mac sales and as of now are only ready for Tiger. It is quite expensive purchasing these software packages. Adding another $129 OS X upgrade on top of these packages is quite an expensive couple months. And if you time them on top of each other, it almost seems impossible to obtain them all at once like many of us would hope to do. So stretching out the purchasing period allows Apple to do a few things: work with Microsoft, Adobe, and several other partners to make sure Leopard runs all their software "out-of-the-box", allows us consumers to actually afford the software upgrades, and also allows Apple some time to actually show off and market Leopard. Did any of you actually think they would put out an OS before even showing it off publicly?! C'mon it's Apple! For Apple fans all I have to say is this- I hope you've been saving your pennies!
