Mac OS X True to the "under-promise and over-deliver" mantra, Apple has announced that it will start shipping Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard August 28. The original release date was announced to fall somewhere in September, so Apple is delivering ahead of schedule.

Ordered it today. It's funny how $29 can be translated to 319 SEK (swedish currency). According to Google, "29 U.S. dollars = 204.598528 Swedish kronor" ... But I still think 319 SEK is cheap enough so I'm happy.

Doesn't help that the Swedish government rapes the customer to the tune of 25% VAT.

Wow, and I thought Canada's tax of 13% (Ontario, 8%, federal 5%) was high...

Then again, they do get free health care and other government benefits for that.
