YA Rumor: Mac OS X 10.6 to debut at WWDC, will be Intel-only


Could developers be getting a sneak peak at Mac OS X 10.6 at next week’s WWDC? Maybe!

A little birdie told TUAW that Apple could well give developers an early build of 10.6 at the conference in San Francisco. It’s been suggested that 10.6 won’t bring much in the way of new features, but will instead focus on stability and security. That 10.6 could be the first Intel-only Mac OS has also been mentioned. How true any of that is, of course, no one knows for sure. Nor should it bother you, since the earliest it would be released is next January’s MacWorld.

We also don’t know the name for the new operating system. If Apple were to keep going with its “big cat” theme, there’s but a few of those left: cougar, lion (my favorite), lynx, and so on.
