10.5.2 due this year
I can understand wanting to get the next Mac OS update right but how long do we have to wait? I’ve delayed starting on my hackintosh until 10.5.2 is out to make sure I buy hardware that will work with the minimum of patching. There are so many reputed fixes in the update that it’s going to be a must for all Leopard users, finally giving us the quality we were originally promised.
Mac news sites and forums were happily predicting 10.5.2 would accompany the Macbook Air, but it wasn’t so. They’ve now moved onto new multi touch Macbook Pro’s due in February and 10.5.2 will launch with them. MacRumors has news that build 9C27 was made available to developers on Thursday, so even if that becomes the final version we won’t see it until late next week.
I’ve got money burning a hole in my pocket Apple. Please get the update out before another gadget tempts me.
