Mac OS X Leopard to be released on October 26

The most pretty OS since Vista, Mac OS X Leopard is ready for its time in the spotlight and will be officially released on October 26. Already available on pre-order, the new operating system comes with more than 300 new features and introduces a brand new desktop with Stacks, a new way to easily access files from the Dock; a redesigned Finder that lets users quickly browse and share files between multiple Macs; Quick Look, a new way to instantly see files without opening an application; Spaces, an intuitive new feature used to create groups of applications and instantly switch between them; and Time Machine, an effortless way to automatically back up everything.

“Leopard, the sixth major release of Mac OS X, is the best upgrade we’ve ever released,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. And since the Jobs Man couldn't resist not kicking Microsoft in its soft part he also added - “And everyone gets the ‘Ultimate’ version, packed with all the new innovative features, for just $129.” It's a good thing (for Microsoft) Leopard doesn't really 'do' PCs.
