Apple’s Mac OS X Snow Leopard looks to beat Microsoft’s Vista service pack, er, ‘Windows 7’

“Windows 7 and OS X 10.6 are in a race to the finish line, but Apple looks set to get there first with a mid-year release of Snow Leopard,” David Flynn reports for APC Magazine.

“Apple has issued the second beta for its next-gen OS… Stamped as Build 10A335, it was released to Apple’s close-knit developer community just three weeks after the previous release – a quickening pace which may indicate that Apple is looking to close in on its promised northern summer release date,” Flynn reports

“If Snow Leopard is indeed facing the home stretch it could make a public debut at the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference which kicks off on June 8th in San Francisco, even if the software itself was not released for some weeks after,” Flynn reports.”But it would be unlike Apple not to take full advantage of this event to gain maximum publicity for Snow Leopard while Microsoft still labours on Windows 7.”
