Today Apple officially announced that their next version of OSX, Leopard, will go on sale at 6 P.M. on October 26.

Leopard is also available for pre-order with a guaranteed delivery date of October 26.

Taking the usual jab at Microsoft, Steve Jobs made the following comment of Leopard pricing:

…everyone gets the ‘Ultimate’ version, packed with all the new innovative features, for just $129.

Leopard most likely on track for October release

According to ThinkSecret, Leopard is still on track for its delayed release estimate of October.
This gives Apple a matter of a few weeks to declare a Gold Master, produce a significant number of copies and get them to retail stores. It’s a time crunch for sure.
I don’t remember the exact timeline of things with the release of Tiger, but if memory serves me correctly Apple had atleast a month or two of pre-ordering Tiger on their site…which hasn’t been the case of Leopard. Maybe Apple will be ditching the pre-order and just surprising us one morning with Leopard being available.
Only time will tell.
