    I recently noted that Apple gives discounts on select software to Govt Employees. My friend being one, he was able to order Panther for me for just $65! Sweeter than if I went hunting for a student to buy me the same :D

    Best is, he ordered on Friday, and it was delivered yesterday! I installed it without hitch, and I can finally see what fun it is to switch users with the cube...:)

    Being that you are not the government employee, I'm pretty sure that this is illegal.

    It probably is, but *no-one need know* ;)

    Welcome to Panther! I think you'll find it's well worth the money over Jaguar. You should already be accustomed to expose, while you'll find nice refinements to Safari and Mail, as well as a much better Preview. Font Book is about the only new feature that I don't really use much. Good stuff!

    I love the "We all love Apple to death, but will gladly rip them off" attitude. :rolleyes:

    Anyways welcome to Panther, it is a very nice OS. Hope you don't get to jealous when you see the Tiger preview in a month.

    What I love is the speed with which people pass judgement, first of which is that I am stupid enough to do something illegal and post it here :rolleyes:

    Please check :
    State and Local Government Employee Purchase Program (“EPP”)

    YAY IT'S LEGAL! I'm going to speak to my friend, who is a politician, you may know him... George Bush. He said he'd gladly buy me any Apple product throup the EPP program. :D
