Apple Pulls Boot Camp, Leopard Leaks
Although Mac OS X version 10.5, known as "Leopard," won't pounce into retail stores until Friday at 6pm, a purported final copy of the new operating system is already making the rounds on the Internet. Windows Vista leaked out before its launch as well, but there is one key distinction in that Leopard includes no activation requirements or other anti-piracy restrictions. Mac enthusiast sites are using the leak to prepare early reviews of Leopard.
In preparation for Leopard's launch, Apple has pulled the beta version of Boot Camp, which allows owners of Intel Macs to install Windows and dual-boot between the operating systems. It's unlikely that Apple will provide further updates to Tiger owners, instead encouraging them to spend $129 on the upgrade to Leopard, which ships with Boot Camp built in.
