Could we meet 10.5 at Macworld 06?

David Chartier

Whoa whoa whoa, let's put all this talk about Intel Macs on hold for a second and think about what we could also see at Macworld 06 in addition to - or instead of - new hardware: Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. How much would that rock? I mean: Apple using new, faster Intel chips is cool, but I personally don't believe the hardware makes the Mac experience - it's all about the software in my book, so I'd be much more interested to see a more powerful, more refined, more everything version of OS X.

A couple of clues brought me to this post. The first is the fact that we know the next version of OS X is landing in 06, as Apple has already used it to fire a shot across Vista's bow by announcing it would be out by late 06 or early 07. The second clue is from all the buzz surrounding Intel chips and new hardware. An introduction of Leopard at Macworld would be a fantastic "one more thing" and/or showstopper that no one - but me, of course - saw coming.

So just in case it happens: you heard it here first. In case it doesn't happen, well then I'd like to point out that my ability to predict what Apple will do next is neither more nor less accurate than most of the rumor sites out there.

But enough about me, what do you guys think: will we get a sneak peek of Leopard alongside or instead of Intel Macs on January 10th?
