    Leopard, delayed until October

    Right from the Apple site

    Get ready, get set, get Leopard

    All these features and more are delivered to you in one universal, fully accessible, 64-bit operating system. Coming October 2007.

    another statement by Apple today

    iPhone has already passed several of its required certification tests and is on schedule to ship in late June as planned. We can't wait until customers get their hands (and fingers) on it and experience what a revolutionary and magical product it is. However, iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price -- we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS X team, and as a result we will not be able to release Leopard at our Worldwide Developers Conference in early June as planned.

    While Leopard's features will be complete by then, we cannot deliver the quality release that we and our customers expect from us. We now plan to show our developers a near final version of Leopard at the conference, give them a beta copy to take home so they can do their final testing, and ship Leopard in October. We think it will be well worth the wait. Life often presents tradeoffs, and in this case we're sure we've made the right ones.

    pity about the delay but hopefully it would help improve the drive for pure 64bit computing
    Fast computers breed slow, lazy programmers
    The price of reliability is the pursuit of the utmost simplicity. It is a price which the very rich find most hard to pay.

    Well I would rather them take there time and get it right for the release then to rush it and release it and have all kinds of problems. Too many times have companies did this.

    Patience is a good characteristic to have these days I would say.

    As long as it's not as buggy as 10.4.0, i'll be fine.

    And that gives me enough time to pop a merom into this T60 and experience JaS's magic in pure 64bit :P
    In short, both AMD and NVIDIA discovered that their next-generation graphics cards are superior to each others' last-generation graphics cards.
