Steve Jobs will be demoing the next generation MAC OS X, codenamed Leopard, at the World Wide Developers Conference in August. Beside getting their OS out in time for the holidays, it also beats Microsoft to the punch with Vista being delayed into next year.
One of the expected additions to this new version will be the final release version of their Boot Camp to allow Microsoft OS dual booting capability. Being on an Intel platform now, Apple can support both OS X and Microsoft OS’s. Best of both worlds.
As much as Apple is looking forward to demoing their OS, they are at a developer’s conference, and the developers are the key audience. There are plans to give these developers information on how to best leverage the new functionalities the OS offers. They will also allow some hands on testing and have engineers on hand to answer any questions the developers may have. Looks like they take their developer’s seriously, and I think the atendees will appreciate the effort they are making.
