When do you guys think Leopard is coming out?
I think it will be late may to give developers time to see final version before wwdc
There will be a SE on May 1 and it will be released during the end of May.
Late May / Early June
I think it will be ready by late may but it will be a marketing decision whether or not to release it before WWDC. My view is that they will release it before WWDC, maybe 2 weeks or so. Spreads the free marketing over a longer timeframe.
I don't see why Apple would need to do that. Developers have been testing Leopard since last August, and even if there is something truly different in 10.5 (like an enhaced GUI), the core of the new OS has been tested and re-tested by developers. No, I think Apple will announce it on June 11th, not just because it's my birthday, but because they will want to make as much noise as possible about it.
If the builds have been seeding to developers roughly monthly or sooner, shouldn't we expect a new build on Easter Monday?
June 11th is also the release of the iPhone I believe.
Well I personally can't see it being released at WWDC considering they will have other stuff to announce then (like the new MacBook Pros based on Intel's new chipset).
If it doesn't get released at NAB in a week, then I will go for May.
I think at NAB or in may they will give a release date of june 11th or sometime in that week
I hope it's middle of May, but really think it's going to be the first or second week in June.
Definitely WWDC, methinks.
Maybe end June? Announced at WWDC?
I think it's going to be released during June, mainly because of the time machine themed WWDC email I was sent.
It won't be released without being announced in advance. Apple has done it that way for ever OS X release so far, with a big countdown counter on their main Web page. It would be great to see it announced at NAB with a May release, though.
I'm waiting on an iMac purchase and decided I'd stick it out until NAB to see if there is new hardware announced or if Leopard is released. At this point, it's looking like Leopard won't ship in a week. I'm getting an itchy trigger finger on the Mac Store page's checkout button since I can just add Leopard later...
We will see Leopard at NAB.
It will probably ship mid to late May.
Leopard is NOT going to be addressed at NAB. NAB is the National Association of Broadcasters conference, so we will see things that are related to video/film production. Most likely, this will be Final Cut Studio 6. This will be the entire keynote. Leopard will not be announced, and the only preview you might see would be a preview of Final Cut features that specifically require Leopard.
Note: These Leopard overview articles show features and interface elements that are pre-release and may change.
(from Leopard developer page)
All features referenced in the Mac OS X Leopard Sneak Peek are subject to change.
The pre-release Leopard discs can be had until June 11th, 2007. All signs point to June.
I don't think that it will happen before june, but I would love to be wrong.
soon. (probably meaning, as we already know, June)
I voted for it to be shipping in June.
Duff-Man says...it is June. They've already denied the 'delay' from spring rumours and if they hold to prior release strategy they will want to make an announcement of the shipping date along with a pre-order scheme. The lack of leaks and external seeding seems to indicate that they are keeping much close to their chests for the moment - I suspect we will perhaps see some wider seeding this month and into May, leading up to the release announcement and shipping date...oh yeah!
June @ WWDC.
...NAB just wouldn't make sense, and there just isn't any other feasible time unless Apple holds a special event (unlikely).
WWDC receives all of the hype and publicity. It makes the most sense.
June 12 -- the tuesday before father's day.
