has anyone else noticed that you can now choose if you want your machine to be loaded with 9 or X at the apple store online (educational). has it always been like this?

It's been like that for quite a while now. I think it's more a question of which OS the machine boots into. To have to fill out all of the crappy registration details on hundreds of new macs in OS X then have to do it all over again in OS 9 (as I have in the past few weeks) is annoying:rolleyes:

I think that the education store has always had the choice. Alot of schools are staying with OS 9 for now due to cost of other software, etc.

It's what the computer will boot to, they have both installed.

FWIW, we ordered 120 eMacs, OS 9 boot models and not one of them booted 9, all booted X. Pissed me off.

yeah i find it odd that 10.2 didnt come pre-loaded with 9...
but they are really pushing everyone to use X as their permanet OS.
