Snow Leopard To Ship This Friday [UPDATED]

If you’re an Apple Fanboi, you’ll going to love the news that Apple is shipping their Snow Leopard operating system this Friday unless you have a Power PC based Mac:

“Snow Leopard builds on our most successful operating system ever and we’re happy to get it to users earlier than expected,” said Bertrand Serlet, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “For just $29, Leopard users get a smooth upgrade to the world’s most advanced operating system and the only system with built in Exchange support.”

I pre-ordered a copy when I got my replacement MacBook Pro this June and when I check my order status via the Apple Online Store, it still slated to ship in October. Perhaps that will change in the next few days? In any case, as soon as I get it, I’ll likely do a backup of my existing install and try it out. If anyone out there gets their hands on a copy of Snow Leopard, feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.

UPDATE: According to the Apple Online Store, my order is due to ship by August 28th. I should note that I only paid $13 CDN for this as I bought a Mac after June 8th. So if you just bought a Mac, make sure to click here so that you can get Snow Leopard for less. You should note that your order has to be in within 90 days of the purchase of your Mac, or December 26th 2009 whichever is earlier.
