Apple's Snow Leopard Set For June 8?

Apple's Snow Leopard set for June 8

The next version of Apple Mac OS X operating system, Snow Leopard, will be released on June 8 - if one Apple-watcher's prediction is correct.

The Baltimore Sun's David Zeiler, writing in his "Apple a Day" blog, came to this conclusion by recounting recent history and examining the events schedule of San Francisco's Moscone Center, the home of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) since 2003, when it moved from its previous venue, Silicon Valley's San José Convention Center.

WWDC has traditionally vied with January's Macworld Expo as the stage for major Apple announcements. At his keynote for WWDC 2008, for example, Steve Jobs announced Snow Leopard, aka Mac OS X 10.6, which he said would be ready in "about a year."

Apple has not yet announced the dates of this year's WWDC, but last year, the five-day event was held June 9-13. In 2007, it was June 11-15, and in 2005, it was June 6-10. WWDC 2006 was an outlier, taking place August 7-11 - likely because Apple was waiting for Intel to provide the Woodcrest-class Xeon processors used in the Mac Pro that it announced at that year's keynote.

I think they'll make Job's return a big thing and release something special like Snow Leopard or a new Iphone.

Need to buy an install disk - same as from Tiger (10.4) to Leopard (10.5). This will be 10.5 (Leopard) to 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
