Well, now we've got a firm date. And it's all courtesy of an uncharacteristic leak from inside Apple. According to MacRumors, one of Apple's suits dropped the info in a slide during a presentation last week, marking the release for Snow Leopard as Q1 2009. With MacWorld set for the first week in January, it's safe to assume we'll be seeing it then.
Seeing as Microsoft is plotting to release Windows 7, it's no shock to hear of Apple planning on beating them to the punch. Like Windows 7, Snow Leopard is not expected to be the major jump seen when Leopard was unveiled in 2007.
We'll be down the front at MacWorld, bringing you all the news as it happens, so stay tuned for more details as we get them. In the meantime, take a peek at our review of the new MacBook Pro.
