    Seems some dirty little monkey has decided to leak the DVD given to developers at the WWDC conference (that's the story anyway, I don't know if a preview was handed out, or if the image was ... ehm, borrowed).

    I might be tempted to install this on my iPod later, though due to the fact that most of the fun stuff has been held back, I may wait until some more feature-full builds are released/leaked. :)

    Anyone else given this a go yet ?

    Nah, I haven't taken serious thought to it yet for pretty much the same reasons. Have it on disc now just in case I decide to get froggy.

    You can install Leopard on your iPod? :p

    This was bound to happen at some point. I probably won't mess with it as I use both my desktop and laptop for work and I don't want to put either one out of commission. Maybe someone around here will feel adventurous. :cool:

    You can install Linux on your iPod, so I'm sure it's possible :p

    isn't it also possible to turn the iPod into a bootable drive?

    I think that's what he's talking about. Installing the leaked Leopard onto his iPod and booting from there so he doesn't risk his "normal" system.

    Yeah, boot from any external HD.

    Yup, you can use an iPod as the install media, or as an external disk. Though it's internal HDD is rather slow, so it's not really recommended.

    Yeah, I just assumed you meant iBook when you said iPod.

    Do it and tell us about it (with screenshots)!
