News on the new Apple OS
It's probably going to be in June, says a lot of people

 2:47 am on Mar 27, 2007 (gmt 0)

I'm going to buy a new Mac, but I of course want to be on the bleeding edge. But, of course, as an American, I don't like waiting. So, I've started looking for when the new OS is going come out.

After spending more time on this than anyone should, I found the answer: no one knows. But, informed guesses are pointing to June. (If you do a lot of digging on this, you'll discover that the informed guessing a few months ago was late March. So, take this news for what it's worth.)

If it's most important to be on the bleeding edge, I'd wait. They're overdue for a new line of machines as well as the new OS arriving soon.

That said, I don't blame you if you can't wait.. I switched a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier!

Ha. My OS is 10.3.9, so being on the bleeding edge would be a real change of pace. New software that is going to be updated anyway delights me (if it is from a mainstream firm, of course), but new state of the art hardware? You go first.

I worked on new Macs in another office recently and I'm really looking forward to getting one for myself.

But, I've decided against a 24-inch screen. That's a wall, not a screen.

Apparently they had to move some engineers to the iPhone project to make that June deadline.

Maybe Apple needs to hire more engineers? It's not like they can't afford it....

I predict Apple will soon start offering free upgrades to Leopard to those who buy new Macs. They've done that in the past. Upgrading Mac OS X is really pretty simple.

An OS release being delayed is nothing unusual, just unusual for Apple. As a MacHead, I'll look on the bright side and be happy Apple's suffering from growing pains instead of the other kind.

Oh, and anyone who needs a bleeding edge Mac can buy an iPhone when they come out. They are Macs.
