Reports Say Apple May Tout New OS Next Week

 Reports circulated Wednesday that Apple Inc. may demo the next iteration of Mac OS X next week or even release code to developers in preparation for an early-2009 launch.
According to an account on Mac enthusiast site TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog), Apple may provide early copies of Mac OS X 10.6 at next week's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which opens Monday and runs through next Friday in San Francisco.



Mac OS X 10.6 will run on Intel -based hardware only, said TUAW, and so will mark the ditching of support for the older PowerPC processor-equipped Macs. Apple announced it would shift to Intel processors three years ago, and unveiled the first systems in January 2006 ; most analysts have said that move is largely behind the reason for Apple's renewed success selling personal computers. It has never disclosed how long it would support the PowerPC with OS upgrades, however.  [PCWorld...]   [Comments...]
