that's my evidence. wwdc is clearly going to be all about leopard, so i strongly suspect it will not be out before

    people seem to think there might be a leopard release before wwdc. pretty much seems impossible to me (unfortunately)

    It could be one or two weeks before, although I am not too much optimistic about that.

    I am afraid I fail to see the argument.

    And your evidence is an ad for WWDC?

    Dear Newb:



    That is a fallacy.



    What does WWDC stand for? Worldwide Developers Conference. WWDC is specifically FOR developers and is almost always is focused around the operating system regardless of whether or not there is a new version due to be released soon. I assure you, should Apple release Leopard BEFORE WWDC, there would certainly be a plethora of Leopard relating workshops, information, training, etc., FOR DEVELOPERS at WWDC. Also, traditionally, Apple has not announced the shipping of OS X upgrades at big keynotes.



    There is no question as to whether or not WWDC will be ABOUT Leopard. The question is, when will Leopard be unleashed. It may very well be before WWDC, and yes, it is *possible* it would be released at WWDC.

    I would hope that most people have thought that, but with all of these rumors...who knows?



    But it makes since -- if there are hidden features, you can expect that those features would be announced BEFORE it gets released. Anyway, more then likely correct :-D.

    You can't be serious right?



    Exact release date is irrelevant. WWDC will be about Leopard no matter whether Leopard is released before, after, or at.

    As others have said, WWDC itself doesn't indicate whether Leopard will be released before, during or after the conference. But, the start of the conference does provide a convenient date for Leopard to be released that still falls within Spring 2007. My intuition now is that Leopard will be released after WWDC, but before June 21 to stay within spring.

    There is at least one item on Apples developer site which is for leopard and expires on June 15th if that is any guide.



    I am just awaiting its arrival when ever it maybe.

    WWDC is most logical though, even though that banner is no indication. The "secret" features must be revealed before the release, reading about the features would not be as fun as seeing Steve demo them!
