    This from Appleinsider:

    "The late development process hasn't gone without error, however. According to sources, the Mac OS X development team seeded Mac OS X builds 4K47 and 4K48 internally last Saturday, after Friday's build of the OS (4K46) was said to have fried one of the company's 533MHz multiprocessor Power Mac G4 test machines. It is currently unknown whether the Power Mac was a finalized unit or a prototype that the company had kept on-hand for testing purposes."

    I heard they're releasing developer finals fairly soon. I think the article was on MOSR.
