Apple has sent this missive to Apple Resellers and Apple Retail Stores discontinuing the boxed versions of several different software titles, presumably in favor of Mac App store versions:
Effective July 20, 2011, the following select boxed software products are end of life (EOL) for resellers and Apple Retail Stores:
- Mac OS X Snow Leopard
- Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server
- Apple Remote Desktop
- GarageBand Jam Packs
- Mac Box Set
As noted in the email, most of these boxed copies will still be available from the Apple Online Store including Mac OS X Snow Leopard. They just won't be available at Apple Retail and reseller locations.
