This is great! Tiger already leaves longhorn in the dust! Look at the diference between Panther and Tiger; then give Apple another year and half to do it again before longhorn is released.mac-er said:Today, during the WWDC 2005, Steve announced that the next version of the Mac OS will be Leopard. It is scheduled to be released at the end of 2006. (Around the time of MS' Longhorn).
Discuss Leopard here.
Don't do that man. Dude, Tiger rocks, it's worth every cent.evilernie said:I was thinking about getting Tiger, but now I think I should wait for Leopard. It's gonna kick so much stuff, and I don't want to waste $99 now, when a new OS is right around the corner!
I thought the same exact thing before the Panther and Tiger upgrades. But now I'm not going to make the same conclusion again. I can't wait to be surprised!Fredstar said:I can't think of any big (worthy of a OS upgrade) improvements to make on Tiger....will be interesting with what Apple comes up with
I'm ~90% sure that resolution-independent displays are going to be a part of Leopard. As for Solitaire, perhaps it'll be in a widget?jsw said:Well, in the absence of any real details, I'm hoping that resolution-independent displays are part of Leopard.
And, of course, now that Macs will be on Intel chips, I look forward to a really kick-@$$ version of Solitaire.
You're probably joking, but it's a long way from perfection. It's just that most of the others are even worse. IMHO. For a start, I hope they're going to start reapplying some clear logic to the GUI and some streamlining to the OS: just how many gigabytes will you need for Leopard? Secondly, Leopard is going to be compiled to be optimized for the new Intel processors (perhaps Pentium Ds with WiMax in 2006, and obviously not P4s, but something else Intel has up its sleeve for the 2007 timeframe).Sirus The Virus said:Since Apple is near perfection whats Leopard going to have?
That crossed my mind, too. I gave up on trying to work it into a post.Applespider said:Is OS X 10.5 called Leopard just so the Apple marketing team can do a
"Apple on Intel; here's one leopard who's changed his spots" strapline?
Or a Dual-Disc DVD, side 1 is for Intel, side 2 is for PowerPCMr. Anderson said:I'd imagine that Leopard will be the first Intel CPU OS for Macs and it will become available when the new machines come out.
Apple will have to also make a PowerPC version as well....
Regardless, I see this all way to far in the future to worry about. Too many things can happen by then.
Rosetta only has to be in the x86 version of Tiger. Why would you need a PowerPC emulator on the PowerPC version of Tiger?mduser63 said:Apple's going to start rolling out Intel based Macs in a year. Leopard won't be out until the end of 2006. Does that mean Rosetta is going to be released in an update to Tiger?
