    Tiger?

    I guess I've been in a hole as I can't recall any rumors of what's in Tiger?

    Any link available with an overall rumor type rundown of what's suppose to be in it????

    I'll be in SF at the time, but am not a developer and don't have cash like that laying around.

    well....

    Enhanced speech capabilities are the only confirmed feature of Tiger 10.4.

    Check the forums for rumors.

    Swoosh!

    That sound you hear is all those poor schmucks forking over $129 a year for an OS subscription, and they don't even know it.

    Oh, and now all the rumor sites will be patting themselves on the back because they reported the name correctly ("As we first reported in 1993, the name for the next OS release is Tiger! We're so good! Give us some dap! (What, no, we don't know what's in it, but we'll make a bunch of stuff up, and we'll take credit for whatever we happen to get right)."

    Linux?

    I've seen a rumor somewhere that Tiger was going to contain an implementation of Linux...

    Whatever

    I personally don't mind having my OS updated once a year, and I certainly don't mind paying for it. Do you know the h*** people would give Apple if the next OS revision wasn't coming out until 2006? (Longhorn, yes?) Also keep in mind that whether or not people have yet to figure out Apple's business plan for the OS updates, no one is forcing them to upgrade. If they're happy with the features they have, then they're free to stick with them.
