I nearly missed it yesterday, but Apple has announced that Steve Jobs will officially preview Mac OS X 10.5—a.k.a. “Leopard”—at this year’s WWDC. A few of the other Apple executives will have cameos as well:
Steve Jobs will headline a team of Apple executives, including Philip Schiller, senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing; Bertrand Serlet, senior vice president of Software Engineering; and Scott Forstall, vice president of Platform Experience, to kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote preview of Mac OS® X “Leopard” on Monday, August 7, 2006, beginning at 10:00 a.m. at San Francisco’s Moscone West.
They had always said that they’d show it Leopard off at WWDC, and I’m sure that everyone just assumes that Steve is the one who gets the honor to do so, but now it’s official (and they’ve even pinned down the time).[Source: Apple]
