After multiple rumours from international gadget sites about the possibility of Apple releasing their highly anticipated operating system 'Snow Leopard' at an earlier than scheduled August 28th date, the computer giants finally confirmed the news yesterday.

Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard will go on sale this Friday at Apple retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers worldwide, with their online store now accepting pre-orders.

With features arguably far more superior, and much more easier to use than Windows, Snow Leopard builds on the success of their current Leopard operating system. Snow Leopard will feature tons of refinements, including a far better user experience, faster loading applications, and some cool new features, which of course will give the upcoming Windows 7 OS a run for its money.

Apple gave the world a sneak peek at Snow Leopard during this year's Worldwide Developers Conference in June, and we were impressed..

UPDATE: Snow Leopard is now available for pre-order at AV Electronics, but will be launched around 31st August 2009. Upgrades from Leopard will cost just B$48.
