    That would certainly be kitschy of Apple. I can see it :)

    5/10/2007 or 5.10 :)

    I think we will see it before October because they failed to release it in Spring so they will want to deliver early this time.

    That's my mother's birthday. Nothing would make her happier than to see Leopard released on her birthday.

    It is not just Europe that uses that date format :). Most of the commonwealth countries do as well.

    Why do Americans put the month first? It's crazy talk, like Imperial.

    It won't be released before October because of the iPhone. maybe September, but they don't want it to steal the iPhones thunder.

    And so does Latin America, or most countries in the world fir that matter, but let me rephrase that. Since when does Apple care about anything outside of the US? :rolleyes:

    Maybe the rest of the world will have to wait until 10th May 2008 (10.5) :)

    DD/MM/YYYY is completely backwards. MM/DD/YYYY is only half backwards. We should all be using YYYY/MM/DD as it makes common numerical sense. The more important numbers are to the left and makes dates much easier to sort.

    Oh, and no more inches, feet, yards and furlongs; no more ounces, pounds, or tons; no more cups, pints, quarts and gallons. Bring on the metric system.

    Completely off topic.

    DD/MM/YYYY is in the correct order of importance when talking about events over a small time frame.

    YYYY/MM/DD would be useful when using a much broader time frame.

    As you said the most important data should be left.

    Metric system for the win?:p

    LOL, this is exactly what I posted some time ago about may 10th :p -->10-5-07-->10.5... :p

    Off-topic:
    the metric system rocks :p
    what the hell is up with the imp system anyway? :p
    12 inch = 1 foot,
    3 foot = 1 yard,
    5.5 yards = 1 pole,
    4 poles = 1 chain,
    1760 yards = 1 mile??
    geez, glad to have the metric system here :p
    1km= 10 ham = 100dam = 1.000m = 10.000dm = 100.000cm = 1.000.000mm :D
    this rocks XD imperial is for suckers :p

    i can certainly see apple doing something like this. when jaguar (mac os x 10.2) launched, they released it at 10:20p. but i think the release month was august. still, earlier in october the better.

    not likely.
