With the WWDC underway, Apple has decided to give a few more details on the coming OS X or Snow Leopard as it is called.


Apple To Offer Snow Leopard For $29


The big news is that the upgrade from OS X 10.5 to 10.6 will only cost $29. Those wanting or needing to get that full version will have to drop $169 on the box set, but it will be bundled with iLife 09 and iWork 09.


Apple is also planning on beating Microsoft to the market with their next OS. While Microsoft isn't planning for consumers to get their hands on Windows 7 until late Octobor, Apple is shooting for September to launch Snow Leopard.


"We've built on the success of Leopard and created an even better experience for our users from installation to shutdown," said Bertrand Serlet, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering. "Apple engineers have made hundreds of improvements so with Snow Leopard your system is going to feel faster, more responsive and even more reliable than before."
