Is that a Leopard waaaay off in the distance?

Apple delays Leopard; blame the iPhone

Apple said its operating system upgrade Leopard won’t be released in June as planned. … Apple also added that Leopard’s features will be complete by June, but the company couldn’t guarantee the quality.

So many punchlines. So little time.

Update: Delayed “until October,” says Dwight, who quotes Apple’s announcement:

[W]e will not be able to release Leopard at our Worldwide Developers Conference in early June as planned. While Leopard’s features will be complete by then, we cannot deliver the quality release that we and our customers expect from us. We now plan to show our developers a near final version of Leopard at the conference, give them a beta copy to take home so they can do their final testing, and ship Leopard in October. We think it will be well worth the wait. Life often presents tradeoffs, and in this case we’re sure we’ve made the right ones.

I’m getting flashbacks. A lot of Mac book authors just had their summer vacations ruined.

  1. Well, that at least gives Microsoft a chance to get the “finished” version of Vista/SP1 out the door.
