    As of today, nobody knows yet.

    Everything known publicly about Leopard is published on this page:
    http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/

    Watch that page closely over the next few days and weeks and I'm sure a release date will be announced with great fanfare and flashing lights.

    yeah, i'm sure you won't miss the announcement... but jobs is over in europe promoting itouch... so gotta give him time to get back and prepare a new powerpoint presentation for leopard so he can have a big song and dance...

    i'm quite anxious, actually....

    i wanna know too. i mean tiger is great, but after seeing those previews, you can't help but be excited and anxious for the next release!

    I'm almost certain no one at Apple uses Powerpoint presentations

    In fact no one should use powerpoint presentations :-0

    Like millions, I am drooling at the prospect of Leopard - doesn't need any more presenting for my money.

    Enjoy Leopard when it comes.

    Does anyone have any idea when the next OS after Leopard will be?
    Only joking!

    However, I do have a serious question:

    My ageing ibook has a proc. speed of 933. You have quoted the min speed for a Leopard upgrade) as being a little under that. Yet I think I saw somewhere the recommendations for the Tiger upgrade as over 1MHZ.

    I find my 933 slow (actually painfully so) so really what might the responses be like with Leopard?

    Surely I should get a new computer?

    An expert opinion would be very welcome.

    Thanks

    I live in UK but I am visiting USA soon. I want to upgrade to Leopard and USA pricing is much less than UK, are there any disadvantages of buying Leopard in USA? Also, does same apply to iLife & iWork?

    Thanks

    From my experience, each update/upgrade has speed improvements. Your machine should work without any noticeable problem.

    If you currently have speed issues with your machine, you should read through my FAQ*:

    http://www.macmaps.com/Macosxspeed.html

    An unhealthy system does not bode well for the ability to upgrade your machine. Upgrades generally add features, and don't fix issues that build up because of data corruption, a machine that is overfull, lacks resources, or has third party utilities which haven't been properly tested with the system which can all slow down your machine.

    Wouldn't there be a difference and hence a conflict between American English and International English software?
