Digitimes is reporting that the next release of Mac OS X, code-named Leopard, will not ship until October of this year as Apple works to ensure compatibility with Windows Vista.
If Leopard supports only Windows XP, then the chances of the new OS attracting Windows users to buy an Apple computer decreases, stated industry observers, noting that with Vista support, Apple’s chances of increasing its share of the PC market would increase.
Sounds a little hard to believe, but Apple wants to make sure that Mac owners will be able to run Vista and Leopard on the same machine.
But how much does Vista compatibility matter to Apple and current/future Apple buyers? With a number of existing Microsoft customers holding off from upgrading to Vista for a variety of reasons, does Vista compatibility really merit delaying a new product release by several months?

Another excuse to spend One Million Dollars!
Stop complaining about laptops costing more than a couple of thousand dollars, because a London based luxury company, Luvaglio, is selling a jeweled one for one million dollars.
The million dollar notebook integrate real diamonds and other precious jewelry into the the system. However I think this Laptop theft will be, by far, the world’s costliest and most popular computer crime. So if you buy one be sure you will be on the target list 🙂
