Just curious, will Apple continue to support Leopard now that Snow Leopard is out?
I guess they will, for awhile at least.
They will still apply security patches, but don't expect any big improvements.
Leopard is kinda old and I guess most problems have been ironed out.
SL is a really cheap upgrade, so only PPC users should have to remain using 10.5.x
Good question. You would hope that they support it for at least another year or so since all their PPC users cannot use Snow Leopard, but I don't know. Apple doesn't show a lot of care when it comes to those sorts of things. It's all about the new new new! I imagine they will keep support for a short while yet before giving it a swift kick in its un-snowy big cat arse.
This is totally a guess.
We take it out back and shoot it.

Really, I think Blue is right, no one knows but the hope is there will be support for at least another year. I don't like that they dropped PPC support when many PPC machines are cranking away just fine today.
this post is brought to you today by a 1.5 Ghz G4 powerbook, with leopard.
So maybe a year or so on security updates? Thats not to bad I guess. Thanks for the replies
They supported Tiger right up until the release of SL, so I suspect that Leopard will remain supported until 10.7 comes out.
Tiger got about 22 months, which is a travesty.
