It's official: Leopard, the new operating system made in Apple, has been declared Gold Master, and will ship on October 26th, starting from 6pm.

You can already pre-order it on the Apple Store, or buy a MacBook online, and get the new OS X for only S&H when it will be released.

Mac OS X Leopard product page also display a count-down to the release time (10 days and 3 hours at the time of writing)

I think I'll wait till it ships so I'll not have to bother reinstalling the operating system.
