  1. If it’s only $29, we should have a new major release every year. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” /> Sooner rather than later would make sense for the next release, since Snow Leopard was marketed as an optimization of Leopard. Not that there’s anything wrong with Snow Leopard; I think its great, and I’d probably be happy using it for the next five years.

  2. If Snow Leopard is considered an extension of Leopard, then I’d say June is likely for .7. Otherwise, I think it’s a bit of stretch to consider another OS X version only a year after Snow Leopard was released.

    Now can we have 10.6.3, already. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />
