Staples put it out early by accident. hehe.
Ya, a bunch of people got it. I preordered from Apple though, and there's no Staples anywhere near me.
*sigh. At least my Sound Blaster is shipping soon so i will have Dues Ex when my G4 gets here.
well, i already said it but i'll say it again. got mine today, its k78 and it needs work... better be an update on/near the 24th.....
I read somewhere that the actual GM that the OS is based on is K80, not 78...
Check your iDisk on Saturday. There will be 3 or more new carbonized apps including iTunes and something else.
nope, its k78 i'm running it right now
Yeah, but its the "real" k78... not the build that was getting leaked all over the place... the huge bugs that people were having with those builds was due to the fact that apple just was a bit too lazy to rename them in the GUI... btw this is not my oppinion, this is what a person from some big site... maybe even apple itself said... I think its funny that everyone is spazzing saying OMG OMG... its gonna suck... the build I have sucks ass and that means that the GM is bad if the GM is labled k78... I think the reason people started saying k83-88 is because that is what the GM really is, only it is just 78 mislabled... Its funny that all those people who made an outcry just incriminated themselves in Apples eyes... sigh... its too bad that I will not get my TiPB back in time to install it when I get it, but oh well.... when it comes back, it will be all fixed... no more broken logic board...
umm.. the retail version IS k78, just without the debugging code... and about being too lazy to change the build in the GUI, do you have any clue how stupidly easy it is to change? its a matter of changing a number in a .plist file... i changed mine to 4k98 and took a screenshot to scare some people..
But they didn't do it, unfortunately. I've been looking for the article that explains it but I haven't found it. Essentially, the developers would build a 4K78 for the Quicktime team with certain things enabled/disabled, they'd do one for the graphics team, etc.
Many different builds of 4K78, which were leaked. Depending on where it leaked from, you could get a 4k78 from the Quicktime team which would be different from the 4K78 that another team would have, etc. That's why the flakiness.
If you have the retail OS X and have installed it let us know how it runs.
It's on preorder!
Here's the article I was talking about:
I still am looking forward to getting my copy. It will be here tomorrow via Fedex. I have had no version of OS X on my machine other then the first release of teh public beta. So based on that, anything version that is on the retail is goign to be fantastic in comparison.
So, I am to understand that Apple actually is supplying the end user with an OS 9.1 disk and the OS X disk in the same box? That is the impression that I got when I read the latest Apple e-news yesterday. Has anyone seen this?
Also, is the boot process the same as it was in the PB? In otherwords, can I choose to boot up in OS 9.1 and not be in X at all when I am going to be running classic apps? This is still a great concern for me.
9.1, OS X, and the Cocoa Developer CD in every box. Sweet!
Yes, I believe so. I've heard dual-booting mentioned numerous times (which is what I'll be doing). Anyone know of a list of compatible upgrade hard drives. I don't want to run into the situation I had with a 12Gig Maxtor that wasn't fully compatible...
Go get your self an IBM Deskstar 75XGP, those drives are sweeet.
15,000 RPM 320MBps Seagate SCSI hard drive.
Maybe SCSI. I don't want to get bruned on another IDE drive...
DAMN! How expensive is that?
Yeah, thats where I got my info... Thanks Sparhawk...
as long as it works who cares when it comes out
Like $900 USD...
