    Back in the early development days of OS X, there was a reason to have a Public Preview. Now what's the point?

    As Apple Computer is be going to demonstrate the new features included in the next OS X's revision probably numbered 10.5 and actually called "Leopard" at the WWDC to be attended in August 2006 in order to release it in the following months after some pre-final releases will be available to the Developers, we would like Apple to release Mac OS 10.5 pre-final releases also as "Public Previews".



    Geez... do people take in English in school to learn grammar anymore?

    No. Not in about 20 years.

    You're right! Unfortunately I'm not English so I tried to do the best. As the text of the petition can still be changed any correction will be appreciated. BTW... is a Public Preview same as a Public Beta?

    Technically they are different, preview has been limited on purpose for review use only. Beta is unfinished version for testing purposes. But nowadays they are used almost like synonyms so there isn't too much of a difference.

    You don't even know what you want? Beta.. Preview. Just wait like the rest of us and try not to get your panties in a wad.

    I signed a petition on there to have more meaninless and fruitless petitions. We won, apparently... POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

    I'm going to put up a petition that Steve Jobs come to my house, bring me some nice croissants with currant jelly, give me a neck rub, and rename E-World after me.



    Because it's just as likely to happen as a public beta of 10.5.
