    Leopard is the code name for the upcoming OS X upgrade - 10.5

    universal binary means that the software contains the necessary code to run natively on either a PowerPC or Intel based mac. nothing to do with microsoft.

    its being previewed at the WWDC conference in august, expect release a few months after that :dunno:

    129 is a guess but that's usually what the OS upgrades have cost. the panther -> tiger upgrade justified 129 imo

    the upgrades are always worth the money.

    Wasn't the whole point of the UB feature to give the ability for developers to create one disc that works on either Mac platform?

    wrong assclown. the first 10.4 disc were PPC only. it was released in April of 05. In June of 05 Apple announced the move to intel. Janurary of 06 the first mactel's came out. & if the current Batch of OS X Disc were UB, I think you would hear more about people + hackers creating ways to install 10.4 on PC's with simple hacks & a retail version of OS X.

    The only reason I'm asking is becasue i now have both platforms and don't want to buy 2 versions of OS X I'd rather have UB

    I see intel and ppc versions. There are no tiger intel discs available for retail, because all the intel macs have come with tiger.

    I figure it would come as either PPC or Intel, I think they would do this to prevent users from buying one copy and putting it on multiple systems(though that might be pretty confusing for end users so they might opt against this) They will probably make the "family" version a UB though. That's just how I would do it if I were in charge and wanted to maximize profits. I am of course hoping that all versions are UB.

    jobs said at the macworld thing last year that leopard would be out by the end of 06. i am assuming it will come out with the release of the new intel powermac towers.
