So here I was, trying to do something to heal the rift between Heidi and Lauren on The Hills. Suddenly, I realized it was almost time for WWDC.

Mind you, I wasn’t really that interested, since it seemed to me all of the chatter was about the iPhone. When people discussed the conference, all I could hear was “iPhone blah, blah, blah .Mac blah, blah, blah” and I quickly tuned out. That is, until I read about the supposed name of Mac OS X 10.6, or Snow Leopard.

According to this article, Snow Leopard is an evolutionary update (hence the code name), with the focus being not on new features, but stability and reliability. And, it could be all Cocoa.

And, in the biggest news, 10.6 marks the end of PowerPC support. Which means that those machines would be stuck on 10.5 in perpetuity.

While I would love to believe this, I don’t know. Seems a bit soon to end support for PowerPC machines. Plus, all Cocoa I don’t see happening for a while, if at all.

I guess we will find out tomorrow, but this sure does make WWDC a lot more interesting, at least for me.
