    TUAW reports an Australian Apple re-seller has a Leopard Launch Party on 20th October 2007 - after 7pm and "due to an Apple Embargo" the Leopard OS will be available to buy.

    This seems a bit fishy...I think this would be an awesome release date, though.

    The 20th still feels too early. Maybe two weeks. I sure would love to be there friday when no Leopard showed up and everyone is waiting in line.

    What's 6 days difference after so many months waiting anyway?

    Don't wish the days away.

    The days are so much slower now we're so close...6 days is a hell of a long time!

    Cute link in the first post.

    I have some faith in TUAW but I won't bet anything on it.

    Ya it looks like Frequency just put up an arbitrary date to fill in space.The vendor himself said that.

    Apple's site had a 26th date up for a few minutes so I'll go with that one even though at one time I thought it would be the 19th ( 20th in Sydney )

    I don't think it's happening the 20th. that only gives them 6 days to declare a GM and get all of the disks duplicated, I don't think that that is able to happen. I'm guessing developers get one last seed of the GM today or tomarow, followed by an announcement of two weeks until it ships coming on Tuesday with it shipping Tuesday the 30th.

    If the new torrent out that claims to be the GM is real, I think this is very likely :)

    Are you saying an internal build of OSX is on the torrent sites?

    Can you imagine what would happen if Apple were to release an OS on Christmas Day?

    Time would stop outright :D

    Just an FYI, this has been debunked.
