Leopard owners, it might be time for you to update your operating system. It's four years old, and companies, including Apple, are no longer supporting it. Earlier this year, 1Password dropped support for OS X 10.5 Leopard, and now Mozilla may do the same with Firefox. Mozilla engineering manag...

Firefox 4 received quite a bit of fanfare when it finally rolled out of beta. Unfortunately for some Mac users, Mozilla decided to drop support for PowerPC processors and therefore Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger from FF4, meaning that G3, G4 and G5 users were left out in the cold. If you're one of these u...

Word has been gradually seeping through the various mac user groups in Second Life saying that Leopard runs SL stably - with the usual provisos that some prefer various other clients (the Nicholaz-s patch from Barney Boomslang is my firm favourite, there are those who love the OnRez client too). My ...

For those of us who are both Mac users and WoW fans, there are two very important types of software release: a new patch for WoW and a new version of Mac OS X. Patch 2.3 may not be out yet (although we can always hope for next Tuesday), but Mac OS X 10.5, AKA Leopard, is released today! This is no...

It's not a huge surprise, but Apple's gone ahead and posted a note confirming that Leopard will not support Classic, even on PowerPC machines. Of course, Intel Macs have never been able to run Classic anyway, so only like Hypercard user groups and the three printshops still running QuarkXPress 4 w...

As dozens of commenters have noted, Leopard pre-orders have started shipping out from Apple's magical workshops, and since the votes are resoundingly in favor of blowout coverage, we're getting ready to bring it to you. It doesn't look like anyone's gotten a (legitimate) copy yet, but rest assured...

It's not like you won't be seeing this tomorrow anyway, but just in case you can't wait another second to check out what Apple's OS X Leopard will look like on the shelf, well, here you go (short vid after the break). The company's trend of minimizing packaging is clearly at play here -- great for...

With just three days to go before Leopard hits the scene, Apple's gone ahead and made Boot Camp unavailable to download -- a move that shouldn't surprise anyone, because we knew it was coming the day Leopard was announced. Tiger users with Boot Camp partitions who aren't ready to make the leap to ...

Apple's been all about the video guided tours lately, and with Leopard just around the corner, the company's gone ahead and put John, The Classy Salt-and-Pepper Apple Store Employee, in front of the camera to walk you through the new release. Nothing particularly new to report, but it'll keep the ...

Along with today's announcement of Leopard's release date, Apple has also now updated the Mac OS X site to reflect all the enhancements you can find in the latest release of OS X. So, what's new? Apple, clearly keen to show what they've been working on in the last few months (what with the delay ...

Well, that didn't take long -- following the announcement of Leopard's October 26th ship date, Apple's got the new OS available for preorder. Convenient, but it doesn't really stoke the fires of a fanboy's heart like waiting outside a store all night with $129 in sweaty bills, now does it?...

It's no secret that OS X is based on BSD Unix, and it looks like Apple let a little more of those roots shine through with Leopard -- The Open Group has just awarded OS X 10.5 Leopard UNIX 03 certification, meaning that Apple joins Sun, HP, and IBM as the only certified vendors. The spec covers l...

Oh Apple devs, you are so funny. In a move that's sure to bring on the flames from the Mac vs. PC crowd, it looks like Leopard's developers have left this little jokey joke in Leopard's Finder that's been making the rounds-- when a Windows share becomes unreachable or fails to connect appears in t...

A quick roundup of some additional reactions to the Leopard delay announcement -- if you haven't read David's cogent analysis, well, we'll wait: Daniel Jalkut worries that Apple can't fight two wars at the same time, developmentally speaking, and should globalize development efforts John Grub...

Apple may have just dealt us the bad news about Leopard, but already reactions are pouring in from across the web and even on our own comment thread. This announcement is huge, and it'll take a while to unpack it all, but I've had some early thoughts and reactions on what this all means, and I wante...
