Apple denies Leopard delay

Apple has denied circulating rumors of delays in Mac OS X Leopard, its next-generation operating system. A report by Michael Gartenberg of JupiterResearch says that Apple has confirmed Leopard will ship in the "spring", contrary a rumor floated by the somewhat unreliable Asian Digitimes publication. Last week, it claimed that Apple was going to delay the release of Leopard--until possibly October--to allow Leopard to support Windows Vista via Boot Camp. "The rumor mill is wrong again," Gartenberg wrote in his blog. The company, however, in February flatly denied delays in shipment of its revolutionary Apple TV set-top until just a few days before launch, despite published reports to the contrary. The much-anticipated device, formally introduced in January at Macworld Expo, was delayed by just over three weeks and began arriving in customers hands last week.

    come on, a 3 weeks delay is not the same as pushing a release date from spring to fall.

    off topic: i'd love to see new revs of the MBP tomorrow...

    As we've stated before

    the opinions of analysts aren't all that valued here. Give it a month or so and once again we'll see why.

    Besides, there is much difference between shipping a piece of software vs. hardware. Perhaps Apple wanted to give a firmware update to all of those AplTV's. Just think how long that would physically take! I could definitely see AplTV users not bothering to check updates for the device before plugging in straight in. If Leopard has some further kinks, I'd say most users who know enough to install a new OS (as easy as Mac is) would know to check for updats after registration.

    that's a good joke

    "somewhat unreliable Asian Digitimes publication"

    Now there's an understatement if I ever heard one!
