    Snow Leopard has nothing to do with Windows 7. The two operating systems have very different missions. Snow Leopard is the next evolution of MacOS X. Windows 7's mission is to save Microsoft from the disaster that was Vista. However, Microsoft appears to have made a decision to rush Windows 7 to market in time for the Christmas shopping season. Who shops for Christmas? It isn't businesses or professionals. And did I say "rush to ... market"? Yeah, that's one guaranteed to generate confidence

    Judging from the bunch of Snow Leopard books coming in the August timeframe I'm guessing that SL will be shipping in September.

    Have you used Win7 RC1 or the beta? There's nothing rushed there.

    When they're ready to announce one.



    Microsoft has a... complex... history with announced release dates. But even if they do ship in November it doesn't matter that Apple hasn't announced yet.

    Windows 7 is stable because it is a evolutionary upgrade to Vista. I like what they did with WDM memory management. I can't imagine why they let the stupid implementation in Vista slip past alpha testing.

    Snow leopard is a rewrite of sorts. Anyway, I do hope Apple ships a complete release instead of one that will require an upgrade a year down the road.
