Soooo...Who's buying Leopard?

More to the point...is Noel Leeming the only place that will sell it?

Noel Leeming is probably just one of the places. It's likely you will be able to purchase it online from the Apple Store, or from Apple resellers - this includes a bucket of resellers around the country.

The Server version of Leopard will be interesting.

But, in my opinion, by far and away the most interesting part of Leopard, are the changes and additions to Cocoa APIs. There's some really cool new frameworks added.

Expect to see some slick new apps from developers after it's release.

I will be getting 10.5 when it is released!

My birthday is on 30th of October, so I'm really hoping that it will be out by then! :-)

I'm running the beta version of Leopard and it's pretty good, no major faults...however, I'm yet to see anything that would compel me to part with real money to upgrade. Time Machine maybe, but already use .Macs backup service so nothing new really. Nice interface upgrades though, especially with preview mode in Finder!

You mean getting it delivered right?

I'm quite pleased there are a few days between release date and the day I will be receiving it - means I can keep my ears open for any bugs.

I like the price though - $300 for family pack! =]

Yeah, that is the option I will go for! I've only got three machines, so I'll have a couple of spares! :-)

I'm in no rush to get it..

..think I'll wait a month after the release and check the online feedback, see if there are any issues...etc

One thing that has bugged me over the last few months is no mention of Rez independence - they talked it up and now there's no mention of it in Apple's literature (300+ 'New' features page) Well...we'll see what happens on the 26th I guess

Well res independence is absolutely there.

It's been a significant topic amongst developers.

Like I said before, lots of really interesting and new stuff for developers, which will take a while to filter through to end users in applications etc.

With the leopard release; is it possible to pick up the 'free upgrade' instead of having to send away and order the dvd?

I saw the Mac OS Leopard Guided Tour

I enjoy almost everything except a few in my Vista box !!!

And in the guided tour, the narrator tells that Time Machine backups everything in an external drive. Cant I use Time Machine as Windows System Restore where things are stored locally and not in external medium. If Time Machine cant store things locally, then its going to be difficult. Why should I buy an external medium for that Undecided, Its extra cost !

Well, confirmed

From here

To start using Time Machine, all you have to do is connect an external drive (sold separately) to your Mac.

From what I understand, you can also do 'time machine' to a network drive as well.
