Apple on Tuesday announced that it has sold more than two million copies of
Mac OS X v10.5 “Leopard”
since it shipped on Friday, Oct. 26th.
That rate outpaces the first-weekend sales of Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger,” Leopard’s predecessor, which up until now has held the record for being the most successful OS release in Apple’s history.
Those figures include copies of Leopard sold at Apple retail stores, Apple authorized resellers, the online Apple Store, under maintenance agreements and those copies bundled with newly shipping Macs.
“Early indications are that Leopard will be a huge hit with customers. Leopard’s innovative features are getting great reviews and making more people than ever think about switching to the Mac,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a statement.
