Apple's "Leopard" operating system to roar in August
Ready for another Steve Jobs keynote? The most foaming of the Mac faithful are still fanning themselves from this January's speech at Macworld Expo, where Jobs stunned the crowd with the announcement that Intel Macs were available months ahead of schedule. Now comes word that Jobs will again headline the lineup at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, set to take place in San Francisco August 7-11, and his hardcore fans are frothing at the prospect of seeing their idol once more.
The main topic of discussion at the conference? Apple's new "Leopard" operating system, the latest version of Mac OS X. The Technology Chronicles points out that Leopard is the first OS designed specifically for Intel chips, so this is an upgrade especially worth watching. Paul Thurrott is hotly anticipating Leopard, too, saying that the new release should be packed with features to "deflect pressure" from Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system.
Do you plan to upgrade to Leopard?
No, I do not plan to upgrade to Leopold,
as a matter of fact I didn't upgrade to Tigger.
Furthermore, I have given up on Apple after 25 years.
I am buying a Dell with Vista. Apple is nothing more than
a seller of overpriced commodities and proprietrary system bs.
Microsoft is the new Apple.
Yes I do plan to upgrade. In fact I plan on buying my first Mac. I am sick and tired of all the viruses and constant security updates. Unlike the post above mine I am just over it!
Microsoft! They are only the market leader because the license their OS to anyone that wants it. Imagine if Apple did that. Come to think of it why the Hell don't they?
How lame... I've had a Mac Mini for a year playing high intensive games; CC:FTF, A*A, CoD2, MoHAA, and more. It is running Tiger system. I also have a Dell XP Laptop that sucks. It gets viruses very easily. Infact theres so much BS popups on it I would like to just throw it out. But I use it for PhotoShop CS2, Internet, Teamspeak, and Ventrillo.
