10.6.8 Leo will be available on the Mac App Store

The notes accompanying the latest beta of Mac OS X 10.6.8 are instructive. They tend to confirm what we imagined for some time before. We already know that Mac OS X Leo will most likely be distributed via the Mac App Store.

Indeed, according to Apple, this update improves the Mac App Store so that your Mac is ready to be updated for Mac OS X Lion. One can also think that 10.6.8 is the latest revision of Snow Leopard.

On the other hand, as we announce to you a few days ago, the third beta is able to detect Mac Defender and its variants. Finally, Mac OS X 10.6.8 improves support for IPv6 and VPNs.

Getting back to Mac OS X Leo, the ability to distribute via its platform download will allow Apple to compress time. For previous versions of Mac OS X, it took about two weeks between the time the system goes golden master and marketing: Time to burn DVDs and send them to its distribution network ...

If this indiscretion therefore predict that lets Mac OS X 10.7 will be available on the Mac App Store, Apple should continue to provide a physical version, not least for those who do not have a broadband connection. Still, the version "virtual" could be sold much cheaper than the box...
