    Geez, I thought this was going to be a joke, and we'd see a photo of Afghanis waving around their copies of OS 10.6 Snow Leopard. :eek: Or worse, a photoshopped photo.

    You should look at the reader comments in the article--they're wondering the same thing, too. ;)

    A friend of mine works at a zoo with big cats - she's going to love this.

    To be honest, I never realized snow leopards were endangered until Apple decided to name their OS after them. I hope they throw a few million toward the Snow Leopard Trust as a goodwill gesture.

    I wish they would. All of Apple's big cats are endangered, but they haven't done anything. Maybe when OS X is on its way out and the last big cat name is announced, they'll announce something. That would be cool.

    If you want to read an amazing book about big cat conservation, I recommend checking out Life In the Valley of Death by Alan Rabinowitz. He essentially convinced a dictatorship to create the largest tiger reservation in the world (while battling cancer at the same time). Very inspirational story.

    The snow leopard pictures in National Geographic are also really nice.
