I've been waiting to buy my very first Mac for a really long time. I've decided to buy a 12" PowerBook, but at apple.com it says that it doesn't come with Panther. I was wondering when you guys would think Panther would be preinstalled? I don't want to buy it for a $20 upgrade, or have the CDs come in the box when I buy the laptop, because I've never bought a Mac before; it would be annoying enough to have to install an OS right when I get a laptop, but it would be brutal to do it on a system I am not very familiar with. When Panther comes with the PowerBook does it come with the Developer Tools and xcode? I went to a local Apple reseller and did 'man gcc' and there was no man page for it, which was fairly disturbing.
