Today Apple announced that Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) will go on sale on Friday, October 26th at 6 p.m. at Apple retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers. Apple's online store will start accepting pre-orders as of today.
"Leopard, the sixth major release of Mac OS X, is the best upgrade we've
ever released," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "And everyone gets the
'Ultimate' version, packed with all the new innovative features, for just
$129."


Apple has also updated their Mac OS X Leopard pages with a new look.

I hope this proves positively relevant to all us iPhone users (not just Mac). I'm anxious to see if the predictions about Leopard leading the way for more iPhone functionality updates come to fruition...

I am just hoping that this OS upgrade will breath some life back into my 2 year old G4 laptop. That thing lately has been limping along and I have reluctant to do anything about it until this is released. I will just back up all the music and photos and take it from there! Oh, and if something good does not happen to the phone at about the same time frame that will be the last Apple purchase I make. =)

Would you really stop buying Apple products if they failed to give you something they never promised you in the first place? :eek:

Question before pre-ordering: does 'Single User' mean one account or one entire computer. It doesn't really matter, but I'd like to know.

Just did the exact same thing online and those are the things that I am hoping for also.

You know that Mac Os X will install on as many computers as you want. Will reinstall over and over again. Pretty good when you have a lot of Macs. No Big Brother telling you that it's been 5 times already and you're out of luck. No stupid install window stalling you and asking you to enter a gazillion-serial number, then forcing you to call an 800 number to speak to a heavily accented voice that makes you enter another gazillion-number before they let you use their wonderful operating system.

I'm pretty sure I read on the site that any hardware you buy from now on will come with 10.5 for the cost of $10 shipping for the DVD once its out. And once its out, I'm almost sure that all Macs will ship with it.

I've been waiting also.

Just picked up an iMac on the 14th so glad to hear we can get the upgrade for $10. Any idea on how?
