Last night I saw on Twitter that Amazon has Snow Leopard available for Pre-Order, both the individual and family pack. This is excellent news as it means that we will see Snow Leopard in September, maybe as early as the first week of September. That's only a guess though. Apple makes no reference to being able to pre-order the latest version of their operating system yet, but then they never do. What is Snow Leopard? It is Macintosh OS 10.6, or the 6th version of what is commonly referred to as Mac OS X. For you windows users out there, it's kinda our Windows 7. Mac users won't be getting any major new features, but what we will be getting is dramatically faster speed, smaller foot print (install) and developers gets lots of new tools to make lots of new and really cool software that will be Mac only.
If you are a Mac user and have an Intel Macintosh, then don't ponder - just go to Amazon and order Snow Leopard. The cost, well, less than taking your family to a movie. For an individual copy good for one computer, it's $29. For a family pack good for up to 5 computers it's only $49. So even if you have only two Macs, you might as well get the Family Pack and save $10.
