Well any questions i'll be pleased to answer as a Tiger user. Apple have added backgrounds to this OS - more nature and plants, new screensavers and lots of other niceties.

Yeah, me too. When I first bought it (the day it was announced), the Apple site said something about being delivered on the 28th (early, which I thought was strange), then later it said shipped by the 28th (which I thought was fine for overnight shipping). Now it is shipped, but FedEx says delivery on the 2nd. Tracking has it in a town a few hours away, so who knows, but if I don't get it sometime today, I am going to be rather disappointed. I just got a notification from the university that the computer store on campus will have special hours tonight, and I could've just gotten the software there.

Well that blows. Ordered the day of the announcement and no Tiger. Thanks a bunch Apple. Now they keep e-mailing me links to watch the seminar. It'll probably be at the FedEx office tomorrow and I could pick it up there, but I'm rather disappointed that Apple failed to deliver.

And the seminar requires Tiger so you can't even watch while you wait! My local delivery man only delivered my copy because I phoned up TNT and asked them if they were coming. The last Friday of the month is always busy - and it doesn't help that it's a bank holiday weekend (in the Uk anyway).

Wow! So I won't be receiving Tiger this weekend. I can probably expect it on Monday, May 2nd. I did however call earlier this evening around 6pm Eastern and ask customer support whether I would be receiving Tiger today and the woman I spoke with said that, yes, if I had not received a phone call or email from Apple that I could still expect tiger to arrive today.

After 9pm I called again. I think I spoke to the same person though she didn't go out of her way to recognize me. I told her that I had ordered Tiger on the 12th of April and I then asked when I could expect to receive it. She apologized and informed me that I wouldn't be getting it on the 29th (this much I already knew). She then without any other provocation offered to give me iLife or iWork for free. I was floored considering that I'm getting Tiger with student discount (I am actually a student too). I requested iWork since my current computer can't really take advantage of most of the stuff in iLife 05 and because I'll probably be getting a Powerbook later this summer. She gave me an order number, told me that I could expect iWork on the 4th, I thanked her a lot and that was that.

I feel kind of guilty for getting an $80 ($50 EDU) item just for wanting a little more information about why Apple screwed up. Yeah, I also wanted them to throw one more complaint on the heap so that they might be more thoughtful about shipping on time but I certainly didn't expect iWork or iLife.

The guilt lessens as I look at pictures of people getting powerbooks at the official store releases.

I guess Apple will get a glowing bizrate survey afterall.

p.s. I forgot to mention that the Quicktime 7 update killed quicktime for me in 10.3.9

Yep, it's 10:53pm central time and I am pretty pissed. I could have gone to a local store but decided to avoid it and have it delivered on the 29th. I leave for 2 weeks on Monday at 6am!!!! Arrgh!

Just checked the FedEx tracking and it says it's in California? I ordered from the Apple Canada store!!

My package arrived just shortly after 5pm. It made it from California to British Columbia just in time!

I had problems with Mail too, then I remembered I had installed from plugins, so I trashed them and Mail worked with no problems.

Mine was ordered 4/12 also, and never showed up. I was offered iLife or iWork also, but have them both - I ended up getting a free dock for my shuffle- sweet.

Tiger should come today-

At least I'm not the only one that didn't get Tiger yet. My copy is still in New Jersey (for the third day now).

I said screw it and bought a copy at the Apple store. FedEx can send it back to Apple if it ever arrives!
