Tiger Release Date?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm new(ish - 4 months now) to Macs, but am now a full convert and await Tiger eagerly. I was interested in the past releases of Mac OS X, so looked them up on one of these free web encyclopaedias and found the release dates:
Code:

10.0 Cheetah: Saturday 24th March 2001
10.1 Puma: Tuesday 25th September 2001
10.2 Jaguar: Saturday 24th August 2002
10.3 Panther: Friday 24th October 2003



So you can imagine my thought (hopefully). It seems Apple has a preference for releasing on the 24th, maybe the 25th if the day isn't quite so. This leaves us with 12 days it could be released on in the next six months.

There's 25th January, which is a Tuesday. I reckon it's a bit too early to be releasing Tiger, what with the Mac mini the Saturday previous in the US and the following Saturday for us brits. So let's look at the rest of the list:

Thursday 24th February
Friday 25th February
Thursday 24th March
Friday 25th March
Sunday 24th April
Monday 25th April
Tuesday 24th May
Wednesday 25th May
Friday 24th June
Saturday 25th June

Two days stand out and they are Tuesday 24th May and Saturday 25th June. I checked apple.com and can't see any events falling on these dates, but if anyone knows something I don't...

Based upon the lack of a firm release date announcement at MWSF with continued commitment to the 'first half of '05' position, my money is on the 25th of June.

The more important question is, what will be the name of the operating system after Tiger???????????????? Lion?

Interesting stuff you found.

I think that Lynx sounds the coolest, but the thing is, the whole point of Tiger is that there won't be another OS update for a while.

I think we'll see OS 10.5 in the first half of 2007, and it will be called Leopard.

They should go ahead and cancel the tiger name and go with Raptor. That sounds awesome!
