Um, CAN you download Leopard?So did the people who download them instead of wait for their box get screwed by not getting the "real" official build...?
(This question goes out to people who actually have had their box delivered)
At least where Apple is concerned. Yes, shame on me, I d'loaded Leopard because I just couldnt wait, I had to try it. But Im getting it delivered tomorrow and will be installing from that disc onto my main hard drive. The other install I did was just on an external.Honesty is the best policy!
Well, um, yeah. Regardless of when they received it, they paid for it up front. There is no "demo" version of OS X. Granted, you're ultimately doing the right thing, but by downloading the torrent, you contribute to the perception that there is a demand for it.I know alot of people still frown on this, but IMO there was nothing wrong with demo'ing it a few days early. Is it any different than people that had theirs inadvertently delivered a day or 2 early even though it wasnt suppose to be delivered til the 26th?
But I paid for it already too.Well, um, yeah. Regardless of when they received it, they paid for it up front. There is no "demo" version of OS X. Granted, you're ultimately doing the right thing, but by downloading the torrent, you contribute to the perception that there is a demand for it.
Hey, I'm not pristine, but when it comes to something like this, I know what is right & fair (and in my long-term best interest, avoiding activations and serial numbers and all that), and I'll hang with Apple on this one.
so im assuming they are the same... Can we get multiple confirmations?I did a quick Google and this is what I found.

Honesty is the best policy! Mine turned up today and it was well worth the wait. Buy Leopard today and show your support for Apple's wonderful products, even if your dl isn't full of Trojans.
