    I know this may sound stupid, but leopard owners please do not post torrents on any site, it defeats the purpose of waiting on line, That Apple fan enviroment is what I live for. I understand if you don't want to purchase leopard, I really do, and I might be using the torrents myself for my other macs. So if you do feel the urge to put leopard up on a torrent site, at least wait a few weeks (saturday if your really anxious), I just want to enjoy my time on line at the apple store this friday, using Tiger for the last time, I dont want to wait on line for something thousands of people already have.:eek::)

    This is one of the most bizarre posts I've ever read on MacRumors.

    It's already posted so I'm not really sure why you are whining about it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the assumption that patients don't have computer access in mental institutions?

    He isnt whining, he is simply stating his view on the piracy of Apple's products. Rant on brother, rant on!

    Lay off you guys. He's just trying to remind us all to be ethical computer users.

    OP, this is commendable. Although I do feel obligated to tell you that you don't have to worry about illegal downloaders being supported on this site. Arn and the mods are quite strict about this (thankfully). :)

    Umm - just curious, but how carefully did you read his / her post? After asking Leopard owners not to torrent it, he / she then says: "I might be using the torrents myself for my other macs..." How is this 'commendable' to you? ;)

    thats some crazy stuff. like standing in line? come to nepal and u can wait all day for a litre of petro! but the line at the apple store is short cause there is absolutely NOTHING there, unless u want an older imac. the developing world where there is no mail service or tariff restrictions on media imports, torrents or p2p is the only way we will get 10.5 before 10.6 is out. so to utuberider, please inquire here for special vacation package: trekking tour of mt. everest followed by linestanding in all aspects of nepali life, to include: the petro line, the bank line, the dmv line (please allow 3 days), the visa line (free on arrival) and then of course the short line at the apple shop. cheers!

    Why torrent it for your other macs?

    I am confused why you would have to torrent copies for your other macs when you are buying a copy anyway. You do know that the same disc would install on those as well, right?

    You're very noble and all, but anyone that bothered to torrent their retail copies of OS X now would be very late to the party and would be wasting their time. The retail torrents are already up and extremely active, there would be no point in creating a fresh one.
