Apple’s Leopard OS to Ship October 26

Apple Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard

The new Mac OS X v10.5, also known as Leopard, is now available for pre-order. Apple says the new OS will begin shipping on October 26.

Leopard offers over 300 new features (details here). For example, the Leopard desktop now features Stacks. A stack is a Dock item that gives you fast access to a folder of files. When you click a stack, the files within spring from the Dock in a fan or a grid, depending on the number of items (or the preference you set).

The new Finder in Leopard lets you access everything on your system by flipping through your files using Cover Flow or by clicking items in an iTunes-style sidebar.

And with the new Time Machine, all you have to do is connect an external drive (sold separately) to your Mac. You’re asked if you want it to be your backup drive, and if you say yes, Time Machine takes care of everything else. Automatically. In the background. You’ll never have to worry about backing up again.

Price for a single user Leopard is $129 while the Family Pack (5 users, single residence) will cost $199.
