Apple has denied the rumors of Leopard being delayed until sometime in October, according to Jupiter Research Analyst Michael Gartenberg.

Just spoke with Apple who confirmed the reports are wrong and Leopard is still scheduled to ship in this spring as they previously announced. The rumor mill is wrong again.
