    "... is now said to be in the hands of all registered Mac OS X developers."



    Nice try, it's not in the hands of all registered developers (of which I'm one). IT's in the hands of all registered "Select" and "Premier" level developers.



    Significant difference

    The developer community?



    All of us?



    Or just a handful, if any.



    I don't recall hearing that. Certainly your declaration hasn't been the topic of general discussion at any mass developer event I ever been apprised of.

    "In Snow Leopard, OS archives and installs you!"

    This would be a perfect opportunity to debut an app store for the Mac. Buy and download SL now! Developers would need to know ahead of time, though, wouldn't they?

    I want it to come out on September 4th.



    I get paid on September 4th.



    These two statements are related (I used up basically all my last paycheque on my iPhone 3GS)

    I think I missed the story where it was revealed that Apple pulled QuickTime X from Snow Leopard.



    I'm only running 10A421a and QuickTime X is in that.



    Can we have some comment on why QuickTime X has suddenly been replaced with QuickTime 7.6.x???

    My understanding is that it has not been pulled. QuickTime 7.x is just there so that people with old QT Pro licenses will be able to continue using them.

    Is that necessary though? There is no QuickTime X Pro. Why would someone stick with 7 when X is better and fully free?

    There are certain file formats that aren't supported by Quicktime X and it makes very little sense wasting money to point those CODEC's to the new up to date framework.



    I don't know who told you that Quicktime X has been but I'd disown him as a friend or source of information - he or she clearly doesn't know what they're talking about.

    No No No No. And no. Think before you speak. You don't even understand the gravity of what you suggest...or how absolutely horrible such a thing would be.



    Take your " Apple should control everything including what you like to do" ideas elsewhere.



    Evil propagandist.
