At least two torrent search sites (which we will not reprint here) today are showing a 4.27GB torrent for “Apple Mac OS X Leopard v10.5 WWDC Preview Beta.”
We assume Apple Legal will be one this as they were with Mac OS X Tiger.
“In December 2004, Apple sued three men, as well as unnamed others, in federal court in San Jose, Calif. The company said the men had posted developer versions of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger onto BitTorrent file-sharing servers ahead of the software’s official release. It settled one of the cases this March and another in April. Most of the details of the settlement were not made public,” Ina Fried reported for CNET News back in December 2005.
An “Alex Patterson” has posted screenshots of Mac OS X Leopard via Flickr here.
