Honestly though... I wonder how they worked out QuickTime 7... last I looked it was still in testing. Maybe it was finalized today as well.

My credit card is ready. All Apple has to do is announce the goods.

[Obligatory] If I bought a mac mini last week will I get a discount?

Holy Shit.

That is awesome news.

I cannot wait for Tiger. I've said it a hundred times on the Mac boards, and I'll say it again. I simply can't wait.

I hope it stops my god damn 2.5DP fans from revving...but I'm sure it won't. Still... looking forward to giving it a go.

This confirms my predictions of an announcement tomorrow and then the release around the 16th. I just hope they've sorted the .Mac syncing problems. I really can't wait. I'm going to travel to my local Apple store specially (90 miles away)! What are the queues normally like?
post #14 of 133
Can't wait for Tiger... the only new Mac I'll be getting for a while

(And I suspect the queues at Apple Stores will be brutal.)

I know you posted in jest (maybe) but IIRC Tiger allows you to specify that a given folder not be indexed by Spotlight.

Sorry to disappoint.

Last time Panther was on CD but I expect if you look at iWorks it will be on DVD. It's about the same size as Panther if not less though, isn't it? 2.5GB I think I remember AppleInsider reporting. BUT they'll definitely sell a CD version as well. In fact haven't all Macs for years had at least a combo drive? I would rather DVD so that it's quicker to install.

Oh and about that Porn, you're brother wont have told it not to search for that folder so it'll be found in spotlight. I've been using the Mac OS X search in Panther quite a bit recently and it's actually really fast already, obviously nowhere near as fast or as full-featured as Spotlight because of the index capabilities but searching on the Mac has always beaten Windows. It takes longer to configure a search on Windows then it takes my computer to configure and search 100GB!

And, Spotlight will only show you the results you have permissions for. If your brother has his porn buried in his account, without giving you read permissions for it in the first place, Spotlight won't show it to you.

if i've been waiting for tiger's release to get my powerbook, do i need to wait to order until mid-month otherwise i'll end up with panther installed?

or if i order tomorrow (assuming it's announced then), will they just delay my order until they're shipping tiger with each new computer?
post #24 of 133
You guys are thrilled, but I'm not. Bugs will have to wait for the point release. This is what I've been afraid of.

If you have an administrator account (Or give yourself one when you install Tiger) you can change the permissions on all his folders.

Not only that, but if your brother has a separate user account, Spotlight won't show the files and folders that are in his (or anyone else's) account.

Meh. All software has bugs. Wait a week, see if the bug reports touch on anything *you* care about, and if not, go for it.

Wait for the perfect software, and you'll never upgrade... and in the meantime, you'll still be running buggy software.

I think that's set up on a per-user basis.

Wait till they announce it (hopefully moro) they'll probably say all new computers will get an upgrade to Tiger for $20 (cost of delivery). I'm just hoping they extend this to my PowerBook which I purchased the 31st January - unlikely I know but I had to send it back so only really got a it a few weeks ago.

I explained this to you early but you obviously didn't listen....

Lets wait until Mac OS X 10.4 doesn't have any bugs........and wait....and wait.

You wouldn't be using 10, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 if it was up to you.

Why are you "afraid" why don't you just wait until all the bugs you want "fixed" are done to install the next OS update? Why make the rest of us wait. I've been using this build and I couldn't go back to 10.3 anymore... Regardless of any bugs. 10.3 has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more bugs.

the last 6 months of betas of Tiger were "mission ready" in my book. 10.4.0 will be more than ready for everyone here.

This ISNT a 10.0/.1/.2 release... already from 10.3 betas have been stable. The foundations are well set. Tiger and Panther were the testing of new features, updates to the foundation, etc.

From the time its gone Gold (today) to when it ships (2 weeks?) Apple will already be working on a 10.4.1 update and probably already are doing it as we speak.

Just buy the darn thing and install it.

Us early adopters for the next two weeks will be carrying the brunt of possible critical bugs... and if we do.. we'll be the one reporting them to Apple to be addressed ASAP.

Should File Vault be disabled when upgrading to Tiger from Panther 10.3.8?

This is great news!! I hope Tiger makes sharing printers with PC's even easier.

If you brother was smart, he would hide it in an encrypted disk (or sparsedisk) image.

Yeah, when 10.3 came out, jumping in full bore was such a great idea! Unless you were stupid enough to turn on encrypting your home folder. Or you stupidly had firewire drives connected to your mac. Why would anyone jump right in with Apple's history of having such brutal bugs on the initial release.

The original poster basically was pointing out a sound strategy. Wait for the idiots, um, I mean the brave, er, 'early adopters' to install the new OS, find all the huge problems that are bound to be in there, and wait for them to be solved. No one's saying "If it ain't perfect, I'm not touching it!". But, you know, if you're going to offer a feature like File Vault, shouldn't you at least try to make sure it doesn't corrupt and destroy ALL your data???

Why? Its a freakin' OS update. Its not like there's any earth-shattering features that will make life any better. I think some people need to get out more.

Sorry guys, I'm with Mel on this one.

As a veteran on MacOS updates (I survived 7.5.3!), I have to say that this one reeks of being rushed out the door to meet an artificial deadline.

Gold Master on March 31st? Please....

On the bright side, we'll get to see whatever hardware revs Apple is so anxious to deploy that further bug-killing can't wait.

On the downside, Apple's star has been rising sharply lately - and those of us who've been around awhile know that that is about the time the press likes to jump on them like sharks. They don't need a PR blunder like the Firewire drive fiasco.

Six months more testing would have made the Newton a winner instead of a Doonesbury punchline. I've always admired Jobs' "We'll ship when it's ready" attitude.

I truly hope it's ready.
