It’s coming a lot faster then we might think. Apparently Snow Leopard has reached the Gold Master version, and it’s ready for release. It’s only a matter of time before we start gearing up to get our updates on. Speculations abound that the release will fall sometime in September, but my moneys on an early September release date. It’s looking like the price point is going to be 29 USD for a single license pack, and 49 USD for a five license family pack.
Who can’t afford that?
Snow Leopard’s said to be a major step forward in some technologies under the hood, all of which are aimed at making the operating system a lot quicker, and far more stable. Some software bundles, most notably Quicktime, will be getting some attention as a new version is around the corner, and people are starting to wonder if iTunes will see a Cocoa rewrite.[image via seq]
