[Report] Mac OS X Lion Launching July 6

There are many rumors circulating all over internet regarding the launch of Apple’s much awaited, Mac OS X Lion. Recently, folks over at T-Gaap reported that there source close to Apple revealed that the Cupertino company will be releasing Mac OS X 10.7 Lion on 6 July, Wednesday at 9:00 am Pacific Time and it will be available for download on the Mac App Store.

One particular item of interest about this news is that with OS X Lion being an online-release-only, Apple can wait until the 11th hour to release new OS. They don’t have to first lock it down, then press it onto DVDs, then box it, then ship to their hundreds of stores and through distribution in order to meet a certain publicly announced launch date. With an online release, Apple just needs to upload the final release to their servers and then make it available.

However, there is no official word from Apple regarding this claim. But many other sources believe it to be true as well as this wednesday lies right after the holiday season. Earlier Rumors suggested that Apple will release the software on 19th July but that is unlikely as Apple will be releasing their fiscal
results on 19th along with the new Macbook Air.

Folks over at Cult of Mac also believe that this might be the day and mentioned:

It doesn’t seem likely that Apple would release Lion on the exact same day as they are announcing their quarterly financial results, and MacBook Air and white MacBook supplies are so constrained right now that Apple can’t wait on Lion much longer to release new models.

SO, what do you people thing? Is this rumor true?
