Apple Now that the WWDC08 keynote has come and gone, we've learned very little that we didn't already know. The iPhone 3G will be here on July 11, and will retail for $199 for an 8GB phone, $299 for a 16GB phone, available in white or black. OS X 10.6 will, as expected, be code-named "Snow Leopard," additional details to follow for sure. The App Store will feature some amazing new software, and Apple's new MobileMe is mere weeks away. Watch the "read more" link on this story for continued updates from around the web. If you'd like to read the play-by-play on the WWDC announcement, see Macrumors Live. UPDATED within.

What I find interesting about Snow Leopard is the list of performance enhancements. I wonder if they are keeping Darwin at all? Because a fast way to get all the things they want to have is to start using Solaris / OpenSolaris 10.

Crazy? I don't think so. They already have ZFS and DTrace. It isn't a stretch to think of taking all the rest.

Or they might be switching to some form on Linux. I doubt it though. They don't want to get any GPL too close to them. It might stick.
