  1. Why wait for Leopard? The future of computing is already here. It’s called Vista. Sure it has a few bugs but I have been using it with my brand new PC and it works wonderful. The wow starters here.

  2. To many stories about what people think instead of what they actually know. Let’s just wait and when Apple announces something then we can get all excited about it. What a concept.

  3. This report may be accurate. Why? Because for the past few years, I have been getting increasing worried about Apple growing…about then getting too successful and expanding into other field. So often companies do this and over extend themselves and the price that pays is defective projects and probably in this case buggy software. For the first time since 1984, I am starting to see a LOT of defective Apple hardware (iG5 imacs, ipod photo and iPod video). I now am concerned that Apple will rush leopard out too soon.

    Sigh…I love Apple and have promoted them ad nauseam to anyone that will listen. All my friends call me an evangelist. These days I am starting to get discopuraged and am starting to wonder that the shine is fading. I hope I am wrong. Guess I need to get some of Steve’s reality distortion field to help me along. Apple DON’T release it until its ready.

    never happy. thats what i love about Mac Fanboys.

  5. To GrainofSand,
    Hmmmm . .. ah,,, NO. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” /> Don’t you remember those famous words “And its shipping NOW.” from many a Steve Jobs presentation.?????

    I do have to wonder whats keeping Leopard? I am guessings its one or two items that are linked to iPhone, or Apple TV, or such that they want to make sure work cleanly. Now is not the time for software to come out being buggy.

  6. Hey you losers, I’ve got myself a nice solid 7lb Dell potable computer that I use and it runs an operating system already better than your guyz’ Leppard already, it’s called Vista and it runz like a charm and it never gives me any pro

  7. Hi, I am an analyst, and all signs are indicating that Wednesday will indeed follow Tuesday for this week, and forseeable weeks in the future. Many weekdayologists have concurred that it is probable that we will see an average of 52 non-consecutive occurances of weekdays this year, each coming exactly 7 days after the previous and seven days before the next. With this type of talk among the weekdayologist community, it would be difficult to say, with any real conviction, that Tuesday will not follow Wednesday, at least for this week.
