    Well i took the trip to the Apple Store today, as i walked in, i asked about the update, they handed it to me and i was good to go :confused:

    I realized 10.1 comes in 3 different packages. The one at the retail stores comes with 10.1 and 9.2 update CDs. The Up-To-Date program comes with 10.1 Update, but 9.2 full. And the full version has both full. That explains why i was able to get mine handed to me with no proof of ownership.

    Having both upgrade CDs sucked though, cause i was going to perform a clean install, and it meant i had to install the old crap first and then update. Oh well, it's overwith and it's working.

    It's a LOT faster. I've yet to try the DVD player, or iDVD 2 and all that fun stuff. I did get a chance to use the Word test drive, and it's very nice. At least the $280 upgrade will be worth the money.

    Now for my bitching on IE 5.1. These aqua buttons are really getting annoying. For the radio buttons as i post this message, only one shows the bg color, the rest show white. Now i'm no genius, but if one can do it, it's obviously possible to do! The browse button is still big and ugly, yet the check boxes work fine.

    Oh well. Whatever. OS X is at least usable right now. I might actually use it from now on :D

    Ya. Since you're getting it tomorrow it probably means retail. If so, yes, you get a 9.2.1 Upgrade CD.

    I'm still installing software. Makes me wonder why i ever wanted a clean install.

    Omfg, XP for X? That isn't a trade. That's like trading a shitty model T for a cadillac.

    If I could get a Cadillac for 1/3 the price of the model T, that would kick ass.

    Its a valid trade because I get OSX where I don't have it, and he gets XP where he doesn't have it. It costs both of us only the price of a cdr and labor for burning the cd.
