well its about the season for leopard, and their last build was given like 2 weeks ago, and they need 4-6 weeks fir intensive testing before they make it public, and so looks like it shud be coming out later this month!!!!!
oops, i meant late september or early october, theyve been working on leopard on a while and delayed it, it cant be any longerThat makes sense Why September or late October - and not early/mid October?
That aside, I belive it will be mid/late October at the earliest.
Historically, Apple has released the past several versions of OS X on a Friday evening @ 6PM, with launch parties happening at all Apple stores.I'd be happy with that Friday over the next Tues, but I still think available for order the 30th, in stores / shipping the next weekend.
I have to say, Leopard is really coming together, it looks really nice. I just hope Apple finishes updating the scrollbars and such that are still the old as tar aqua theme. If they do that i'll be extremely happy with Leopard.god i cant wait till this screen hits my future 24 imac!!!
In the past that's exactly what happens. You can either take your receipt into an Apple store and they give you the upgrade disk, or you register online and they ship it to you (they charge a shipping cost for that option though).All kidding aside; what's this deal with getting the upgrade as an option? Does that mean that you can order online after the release date is announced; they'll ship your machine with 10.4 on it, and send you out the 10.5 discs once they're stamped out?
for the record, only mac os x v.10.1 was released on a tuesday. the last three releases (jaguar, panther and tiger) were released on fridays, and jaguar (v.10.2) was released at 10:20pm. lots of things are possible.Did you just pick that date out of thin air or what? It isn't even a Tuesday!
Well it's not like their the WORST thing in the world, but we've had them for how many years without change? Both iTunes and iPhoto both seem to be pointing away from the aqua scrollbars so it would be nice to see their look extend to the rest of the OS for Leopard.I like the aqua scroll bars.
If its released at Photokina, you're gonna be waiting a while. Photokina is held every 2 years (at least according to its wikipedia entry), and it was held last year. The next one is scheduled for Sept 23-28, 2008.When is photokina? I'm expecting an aperture update.
