    I received this e-mail from Apple this morning:

    Not sure if this is related to the fact that I have been checking three times a day to see if my order has shipped. Perhaps Apple is experiencing more traffic like this than they would like.

    Secondly, this makes me question the reports about some people getting their shipments early. Has anyone here actually received their copy of Jaguar yet--or even confirmation that it has shipped?

    I received the same email this morning.

    The only people I [personally] know who have received Jaguar already are people who just received systems in the last few days. The systems were loaded with 10.1.x with 10.2 on CD's.

    that looks like a bunch of BS...the grammar is just terrible, and plus, apple would not continually say "will ship on wednesday or thursday." i think they would be more general about things. if this were a real apple email, it probably would have been sent to everyone that pre-ordered jaguar; (i ordered it a couple weeks ago)...no one else has received this email

    I'm sure its real... I received it this morning too. Probably this is a reaction to the combination of people talking about recieving Jaguar early with new systems, and people getting extreamly hyper about the fact that they got shipping emails from apple. If I read this right, everyone who's gotten a shipping email thus far, will have their copy of Jaguar sitting on a dock (ha.. OSX humor) in Cupertino until Wednesday. So it looks from this email that the only people getting Jaguar early will be by one or two days.

    I agree with rice_web... it's a confirmation that your order will ship next wednesday... you knew you'd get it by the 24th anyway... theres nothing to see here kids... move along

    Got mine

    Got the same email.

    The grammar is horrible, which surprised me. I was about to correct it and send it back, but it was probably pounded out in haste in order to free up some of the Apple Store phone-que.

    My favorite quote is:

    "Apple¹s latest Mac OS X version 10.2"

    That implies that the X does not mean 10. Does that mean that we'll see Mac OS X 11.0?

    I know, it's just bad editing, but it's funny.

    Apple has always called it Mac OS X v. 10.x.x And yes, you will indeed see OS X v.11... so I don't understand why you call it bad editing.

    I just received the same e-mail. They say it will ship Wednesday or Thursday-- Do you think there's a possibility that (with standard delivery) it will arrive before Saturday?

    News?

    I didn't post it because I thought it was news. I posted because it made me questions the rumors about some copies shipping early (as I wrote). Reading comprehension 101: read the whole thing.

    So has anyone received a new copy or word that it was on the way?

    Don't know why some would have gotten it and others not. I think perhaps it was because I received an invoice for the shipping charges (I got express shipping) the day before. Those who received THAT invoice probably got all excited thinking their copy was going to ship, so Apple sent out a clarifying email. I also ordered mine on edu discount.

    Well, I received the notice on Sunday and now - 4 days later by my count - have yet to receive a tracking number.

    I'd assumed the "Wednesday and Thursday" was for the shipping of 2nd day and next day air packages respectively, but since today's the last day they can send my copies by next day air if I'm to receive it in time (unless they're paying the extra for FedEx Saturday delivery, which I doubt) and I've yet to receive even an inactive tracking number, who knows?

    Jaguar by the 24th

    I am in the same boat. I recieved the e-mail on sunday and here it is thursday morning and no tracking number. I ordered mine 2nd day air. My online order status still says being assembled. I am going to be pissed if I don't get it until next week. I can only hope they are backed up and have not had time to get the tracking numbers out to everybody. I had that happen with a 17" display that got delivered to me before I recieved a number.

    I got the same one too. My Dad also got it over the weekend and then yesterday...Wednesday...he recieved an e-mail saying his copy had shipped. He went to the web site and it said fully shipped. He ordered his early last week. I ordered mine on July 17th. I got the e-mail, but no shipment notification.

    I got the email AND the shipping notification, but the shipping notification was a day late. It shipped yesterday and I got the email today. According to Fed Ex (I got 2 day service), at last scan it was in Tennessee yesterday afternoon on it's way to Minnesota.

    The anticipation is KILLING ME!!!

    (By the way, we're dorks.) ;-)

    Roman numerals throughout!

    Since they started with the whole 'X' deal, why not keep it going? Mac OS X.I; X.I.V; X.II??? Why quit what you've started? :confused: :)
