    Following the timetable of mac os x release and announce dates, we ask ourselves the following question:

    Will apple follow its usual timeline and release another operating system soon, namely 10.7?

    So, to give you all a timeline (all credit to wikipedia):

    July 18, 2001 - 10.1 announced
    May 6, 2002 - 10.2 announced
    June 23, 2003 - 10.3 announced
    May 4, 2004 - 10.4 announced
    June 26, 2006 - 10.5 announced
    June 9, 2008 - 10.6 announced

    Is WWDC 2010 going to show us the next operating system? Or, will iPhone 4.0 get in the way? I'll leave you with this article by John Gruber, to make your final decision...

    A few months ago, I heard suggestions that Apple had tentative plans to release a developer beta of Mac OS X 10.7 at WWDC this June. That is no longer the case. Mac OS X 10.7 development continues, but with a reduced team and an unknown schedule. It’s my educated guess that there will be no 10.7 news at WWDC this year, and probably none until WWDC 2011.

    Apple’s company-wide focus has since been focused intensely on one thing: iPhone OS 4.1 The number one priority at Apple is to grow mobile market share faster than Android. Anything that is not directly competitive with Android is on the back burner.

    What about in between the two WWDCs? I would say not this year's WWDC, but perhaps January-March time 2011... otherwise announcement in WWDC 2011 with Dev Seeds until Late September and Oct/Nov release.
