Question Tiger Release Date Theory!

I posted it once before but it go buried.
And everyone keeps asking 'When is Tiger releasing?'

Here is my theory:
  • Mac OS X - 10.0 Starts shipping
    Saturday Morning - March 24th 2001

  • Jaguar Release - 10.2
    Saturday Morning - August 24th 2002

  • Panther Release - 10.3
    Friday Evening - October 24th 2003

  • Tiger Release - 10.4
    Friday Evening - June 24th 2005


    Sorry, but the numbers do not lie.
    One is nothing, Two is a fluke, Three is a pattern

I'm still sticking with May 20 or 21 of this year. It will be interesting to see when it does come out.

The last three releases were on the 24th.\
Either a Saturday (12AM or at Store opening) or Friday night.
(Not Friday Morning but Friday night, As I recall 8:00pm)

Apple like the weekends for OS launch Parties.

The only 24th in the first half of 2005 is Friday, June 24th 2005.

I agree it has to be a Friday - to allow all those consumer purchases Sat and Sun - and for the weekend to Play with it. Are there any 24th's on Thursday coming up? That might work too. It feels like it will arrive before June though.

And I predict that OS 10.5 "Domestic short-hair" will come out Saturday Feb. 24, 2007 and still be sooner than Longhorn
