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."
The best I could find is href="http://www.apple.com/hotnews/articles/2000/05/w
wdc_keynote/part4.html">this: "And in January,
were going to have a final 1.0 that we will make
available for pre-installing."
Splitting hairs, I think...
