    I just recieved Tiger in th Post, and I got 2 copies!!
    On the invoice it says quantity: 1, but there are 2 in the box!!!
    I can't quite believe this, but I ain't complaining!
    Wondered if this happened to anyone else?
    I'm in the UK and ordered on the day of announcement?! :D :D

    no wonder the rest of us aren't getting ours. they feel the need to send more to other people who ordered 1.. great.

    Sniff sniff... do I smell eBay?

    I got the family pack, and even that comes with only one disk so you should count yourself lucky. Of course, despite having two disks, I'm pretty sure you still only have one licence so technically the second disk is useless. :(

    Two complete retail boxes should count as two licenses.

    Meanwhile, when I opened Tiger, the disk was at the very back of the packaging, I couldn't find it, and I thought they had left the disk out. I was panicking, but then found it.

    I thought it was just two disks. Legally, you'd need two proof-of-purchase papers. I got the family pack and it has five of them, otherwise it's exactly the same as the standard box.

    I had trouble finding the disk when I opened the box too. You should have seen my face. In a smiley time line: :eek: :( :mad: :) :D

    Well, I think the ethical thing to do is at least call and inform them of the mistake.

    People are so ethical around here. :) The thing is that by calling them you are spending your time and energy to help them out, when you are the customer. I would probably sell it on ebay.

    Hurray for an honest man!

    The same thing happened to me when I ordered iLife 04. Two seperate retail packages of the same software for the price of one.

    When I called the Apple Store I spoke to a young lady who was genuinely surprised by my honesty.

    She told me that I could just keep it and then thanked me for calling.

    I eventually gave it to a co-worker for his brother.

    I bet if you call them and let them know of their mistake. They might have you resend it back to them. But in the process, I bet you they will send you something cool for free.
