Mac OS X 10.6 to be seeded next week ? Released January 2009 ?

Following rumors that Apple will be releasing Mac OS X 10.6 later this year, recent reports have trickled in stating that an early build of OS X 10.6 will be seeded to developers next week at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

Although Leopard was a smash success, hype has already begun for Apple’s next major operating system release. TUAW believes that Mac OS X 10.6 will ship in January 2009, roughly 15 months after Leopard’s release in October 2007. In the past, Steve jobs has commented about how pleased he is with Apple’s long standing ability to stay on a 12-18 month releasing schedule for its major operating systems.

Current Mac users are urged to be using Leopard build 10.5.3, which is the latest stable and secure update issued by Apple. Recent reports by our neighbors Apple Insider claim that Apple is set to serve up the first builds of Mac OS X 10.5.4.

We’ve recently written a post (in good humor) about how it was time to get excited for OS X 10.6. Guess we weren’t too far from the truth.
