Pre-installed Mac OS X... or not?

">The Register posted
a curious piece entitled
"Apple backtracks on pre-installing MacOS X".

"Apple will not pre-install Mac OS X on new Mac
hardware next January after all - despite CEO Steve
Jobs' promise, made earlier this year, that the
next-generation operating system will become Apple's
standard OS early 2001."

The author concludes this from a quote supposedly
from Apple's Web site: "We'll be shipping a final [Mac
OS X] 1.0 with pre-loading options in January."
(emphasis added)

The best I could find is href="
: "And in January,
were going to have a final 1.0 that we will make
available for pre-installing."

Splitting hairs, I think...
