    god I hope so. I'm dying for a clean install of OSX (too much junk) and theres no point in doing a clean install of SL if Lion is coming this week.

    You make it sound like it's worth staying up late for. I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry to install it if I were you.

    I'm thinking the first of those two. Also, given that Apple's on Pacific Time it'll happen at midnight in THAT time zone.

    I don't get it... you have no proof but you're guaranteeing that Wednesday is the release date? I'm as excited as the next guy, but this seems a little dumb.

    I assume this means 12pm EST... For all of my UK buddies this means 5pm GMT (I think)...

    Seems in line with Apple's software releases time-wise.

    See if this comes to fruition. :p

    EDIT:
    To OP, I assume you have some insider knowledge, if you're okay with stating it here in the forum without citing a source; why don't you anonymously submit it to MacRumors...

    SOMEONE is going to be right about the release date, now that every possible day has been said to be "the release date". I say Tuesday, you say Wednesday, one of us will be right!

    I hope it comes out Wednesday so we can stop seeing all these threads about when it's coming out...

    Note to all early adopters: Please download it immediately and begin the plethora of bug reports so that I may download 10.7.1

    Thanks!

    It's going to be the 14th. You can bank on that.

    The Apple stores have been scheduled for an overnighter on the 13th (the night of the 13th, into the morning of the 14th). They won't be having this overnighter for no reason whatsoever.

    I will pose you this reasoning: Why release Lion & whatever else before the overnighter? What will the overnighter then accomplish? A post-release prep?

    So my point is exactly this: The release (at least for in the physical stores) will be for the 14th whenever the Apple stores open on the 14th.

    Doesn't help me any - I got this notice regarding the bar exam on July 26/27. I guess on the plus side, I'll get to see any issues before installing.

    When is that overnight session supposed to be scheduled? I was under the impression it was tomorrow, not today.

    Eh, if it comes out at midnight, you can at least start the download and then go to sleep.
