    Weird. If you navigate to the "download iTunes 7" page, you get nearly the identical page but with the new gray button bar at the top instead of the aqua tabs.



    You would have thought that, as long as they were over there, they would have also hit the "thank you" page.

    All the darwin pages i go to are so old. Its like apple just doesnt care about darwin anymore. They also shut down open darwin and not its alot harder to build the source.

    Us poor UK folks still get the boring old website too. Seems like someone is being a bit lazy this week - store updates etc are normally simultaneous.

    Most American Mac users probably aren't aware they are the only country with the new design.

    The buildable sources are available at http://www.opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/



    you still have to build the sources. That is where darwin build came in. Darwin build came from opendarwin.com which was supported by apple. Then opendarwin.com got closed. How much does it cost to just keep a webpage up even if it is never updated again!!!!



    I wanted darwin build. BTW dont try posting a link the GNU page with a darwin cd image download as it is not the current version.

    Wow, great links. That first 97 site looks like a sweet little mom and pop store, compared to now, doesn't it?



    Clicking through to the store on the iBook page-- $1600 base for that guy! I had forgotten.....
