“Those who enjoy the idea of a grunting, kicking contest between Apple and Microsoft suggest Snow Leopard will get to market in July or earlier, well ahead of Windows7. That is expected in September, but possibly August and maybe December,” Barker reports. “But whichever gets to market first will be widely perceived by the public to have won significant ground in the never-ending electronics war.”
“The release date of Apple’s Snow Leopard may be announced at the World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco in early June… Apple’s success is that it offers not just an operating system, a range of computers, a phone and a bunch of iPods, but a complete platform capable of seemingly infinite expansion,” Barker reports.
