A Taiwanese electronics publication reported Friday that Apple will significantly delay the launch of its forthcoming "Leopard" operating system to ensure that Macintosh personal computers that run the software are also capable of running Microsoft's new Windows Vista operating system.



The publication, DigiTimes Systems, cited unnamed sources in reporting that Apple will push back the launch of OS X 10.5 to September in order to finish work on a Leopard version of its Boot Camp technology that is Windows Vista compatible.

Boot Camp is an Apple utility that enables Mac users to launch and run Microsoft operating systems, enhancing the Macintosh's flexibility. Leopard was originally slated to launch in April.
