Apple soon to release initial seed of Mac OS X 10.5.4 to developers

“Apple, less than a week away from its annual developers conference, is preparing to begin widespread testing of Mac OS X 10.5.4, its fourth maintenance and security update to the Leopard operating system,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.

“People familiar with the matter say developers could have the first pre-release copies of the update in their hands by week’s end. It’s almost a certainty that the beta software will surface by the company’s developer’s conference next week, they add,” Jade reports.

  1. Given that Apple seeds these updates to developers long in advance it seems that Adobe dropped the ball here bigtime, not Apple. People should be demanding a refund from these two companies whose customer service is as bad as it comes

  2. Forget 10.5.4, when are we getting 10.6?

    I need an excuse to buy a new computer and she is never going to let me if they keep on making their old OS faster!!!!!

    Come on Apple, take a leaf out of Vista’s book, we need Octo-Core, 8Gb of RAM and a 512Mb graphics card as the minimum spec.

  3. Joe, what are you talking about? Are you still stuck on the Decimal System you learned about in grade school? 10.5.5 could be all she wrote! Or maybe 10.5 will go to “11” – or beyond. You have to get over this “thing” you learned back in grammar school and move on to adult thought patterns. When did you ever see TWO “decimal points” in a single “expression”? When that second “.” rears its confusing head, you need to be ready to comprehend that things have changed. For the better.
    Me, I’m waiting for them to fix the glitch that turned my NAS (Network Attached Storage) into the Invisible Disk! What a shock THAT was! Choose: Leopard or NAS! All my wife’s backups were out there! Time Capsule saved the day, but it took a while.

    You’ll be amused, but not surprised, to find out that Vista can’t handle more than two cores and can only use 3.3GB of memory. Techie friends assure me confidently that a simple patch will allow Vista to access 4GB of memory.

    Why bother bashing Microsoft? They’re going to collapse like a soufflé.
