Later today after the launch of MAC OS X Lion Apple issued the E.O.L (End of Life) notice for several boxed software which won’t be available via Apple Store.

As noted by 9to5mac following software will be discontinued from 20/7/2011.

  • Mac OS X Snow Leopard
  • Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server
  • iLife
  • iWork
  • Aperture
  • Apple Remote Desktop
  • Xsan
  • GarageBand Jam Packs
  • Mac Box Set

*Retail boxed versions of Logic Express and Logic Studio will still be available in-stores.

Apple is trying to decrease the number of people who are dependent on physical media. Apple will provide all this stuff on their online store. Apple announced this sudden change by “U.S Field and Channel Sales” email sent to resellers. If we see the new MAC Books, Airs, and Mini, so we wont find any optical drive with it.
