Apple sells 2 million copies of Leopard

We all know that Leopards are supposed to be fast but I don’t think that any of us expected this: Apple has announced that it sold two million copies of it’s OS 10.5 Leopard operating system during the first weekend of sales, making Leopard “the most successful OS release in Apple’s history.” The tally includes both single sales of the OS through Apple’s online store and retailers, as well as new Macs that came bundled with the latest OS. “Early indications are that Leopard will be a huge hit with customers,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs said in a press release. “Leopard’s innovative features are getting great reviews and making more people than ever think about switching to the Mac.” Did you pick up a copy of Leopard over the weekend? Are you holding out for the new MacPros? Do you think that Vista/Ubuntu/OS 2 Warp blows Leopard out of the water? Let us know in the comments.

I use Leopard. It’s really cool in terms of the desktop file management. More organized than ever before. The time machine backup mechanism is awesome. Automated, painless and unobtrusive file backup is awesome.

I tried to install it and my mass storage drive was connectoed during the restart process and asked me to hit any key to continue, I did and it would not continue and did not install and still won’t install… I’m not impressed one bit with that problem. Good luck! It reminds me a Microsoft product…
