It's been nary a fortnight since Amazon started taking pre-orders for Snow Leopard
and now, according to the kids at Mac4Ever
, a handful of "reliable sources" (their words, not ours) have stepped forward to proclaim that the OS has gone golden, meaning that this final iteration (reported as build 10A432, for those of you keeping track) is the one that will hit the stores in September
. Additionally, MacRumors
reports that in the time since this little bomb dropped benchmarks for the build have popped up -- and quickly disappeared -- at the Geekbench
database. Make of all this what you will, dear readers.
