Over 2 million copies of Mac OS X v10.5 'Leopard’ have been sold already, according to figures released by Apple on Tuesday.
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 authorised 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.
Leopard went on sale on Friday October 26.
