10.6 Snow Leopard page at

June 10, 2008 Leave a comment

Wasting no time after yesterdays first details of the next version of its operating system, Apple has posted a Snow Leopard page at There’s nothing we haven’t already heard about 10.6, but it looks like Apple is keen to play the publicity game in the constant comparison with Windows.

Am I the only one who finds it strange that Apple are concentrating on speed, stability and reducing the size of the operating system at a time when Microsoft are starting to talk about new features? I can understand the reasoning for Apple’s choices, since a smaller OS X as used in the iPhone can power a range of consumer electronics, or portable devices using SSD’s. And if Snow Leopard lands in early 2009 there’s plenty of time for 10.7 in later 2010 to go head to head with Windows 7.
