Just in the time since October 26, when Apple’s Leopard OS X upgrade was released, over two million (yes, 2,000,000) copies have been sold, according to Apple. This number would put Tiger, the previous version, in second place when it comes to first-weekend sales. Steve Jobs says that the new upgrade is getting good reviews, and the innovative features are making more people than ever think about switching to the Mac.

Personally, I’m not too much of a Mac fan — I find them pricey, and the interface is a little weird to me, a Windows user — but the iTunes interface, at least, is nice, and I was running a Mac theme in Firefox for a while. I will probably stop by an Apple store and play with the new OS sometime. It’s always good to get experience with various systems. Then I can go find a PC store and mess with Vista. I should write a comparison later this year… Ooh, post idea!
