Sounds like it will be this year. :-)


From eWEEK Article "Next Mac OS X Upgrade: Panther"
    The rev formerly known as Pinot has been renamed Panther, sources reported, hinting that the faux-fur motif of the Jaguar release will continue when Panther ships in 2003.

    Sources this month told eWEEK that the Panther release will mark another step away from Mac OS 9, the "classic" Mac OS that Apple continues to upgrade for compatibility with older applications. They said Apple is planning to "block" next-generation Macs preloaded with Panther from booting into Mac OS 9 although the company will continue to support applications running within Mac OS X's Classic environment. (eWEEK reported last week that Jaguar will shed the traditional installation disc for Mac OS 9.)
