Mac OS X Apple conceded that it will be unable to release its next generation operating system in June as previously planned and now says it anticipates launching the software in October. In a statement released after the close of the stock market, Apple said its highly anticipated iPhone has already passed several of its required certification tests and is on schedule to ship in late June as planned. "We can't wait until customers get their hands (and fingers) on it and experience what a revolutionary and magical product it is," Apple said. "However, iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price - we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS X team, and as a result we will not be able to release Leopard at our WWDC in early June as planned." Update: New Leopard screenshots.

"I really don't care too much, since Mac OS X 10.4.x suits my needs beautifully for now and I'd rather have Apple finish its product before release, than seeing them pull a 'Microsoft' and having to abandon key elements because of deadline or technical issues, like Microsoft did with WinFS e.g."

My sentiments exactly. I'd much rather they get it right than simply pushing it out the door.

Thirded, just replace 10.4 with 10.3. I'm still chugging along just fine with my nearly four-year-old iBook G4 with 10.3.9.

...And since I never use Spotlight anyways, I might as well do the same, if only my Powerbook 12" 1.5 GHz would boot the beast ;)
