More on Phasing out OS 9, and Pinot (10.3)

eWeek provides some confirmation on the possibility of a lack of OS 9 support in future Macs:



A tweak to new models in its Macintosh line of desktop and portable computers will prevent booting into Mac OS 9, sources said, leaving the Unix-based Mac OS X as the sole operating system.



Spymac provides some further details and confirms that 10.2 will not ship with OS 9.



eWeek also references "Pinot" as the next major Mac OS X update after Jaguar.
