International Business Times reports this morning that analysts are expecting a "full-feature demonstration" of Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) at this week's Worldwide Developers Conference. Again, not really news . The fact that Leopard will be interoperable with Windows Vista should remove one obstacle to purchase, says Lehman Brothers analyst Harry Blount.
Blount also notes that a new iteration of Mac OS X usually increases Apple's sales for up to two quarters after release. But Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster sees the developers conference as a "significant wild card" in terms of how investors will respond.
