Apple has announced that the next version of OS X, 10.5 "Leopard" will now be shipping in October, not as previously expected at WWDC in June (and it had been expected even earlier than that, it thought for a long time that Leopard would launch at a very similar time to Vista in January).

Apple Statement

iPhone has already passed several of its required certification tests and is on schedule to ship in late June as planned. We can’t wait until customers get their hands (and fingers) on it and experience what a revolutionary and magical product it is. However, iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price — we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS X team, and as a result we will not be able to release Leopard at our Worldwide Developers Conference in early June as planned. While Leopard's features will be complete by then, we cannot deliver the quality release that we and our customers expect from us. We now plan to show our developers a near final version of Leopard at the conference, give them a beta copy to take home so they can do their final testing, and ship Leopard in October. We think it will be well worth the wait. Life often presents tradeoffs, and in this case we're sure we've made the right ones. [Apr 12, 2007]

Let's hope they allow more customization of the OS. As in, changing the themes, like Mac OS 9 was way more customizable than X. I mean, whether it be changing the colors, I hope they implement a new skinning system.

Wow, I sound like a Windows user. lol

I can't wait until the third party skinning engines sue them for implementing the skinning engine...

Well, the only thing I hope for is that Leopard will be installed by default on all new Macs by November. Other than that, I'm happy. :)
