I don't know.. I've heard conflicting reports about 10.2.. one report says it's screeming fast (to imply faster than 10.1.x), and another says they're still waiting for the optimizations to show up. Other than the disclosure triangles which can disable previews in the Finder and the much earlier supposed switching of window buffer compression to the default on, I haven't heard what else Apple intends to do to the OS to make it faster.. after all, the code word "Jaguar" implies fastest beast. Just curious if anybody has any dish on it?
10.1 was free for me 0_o
$0 at compusa
no devkit CD, but I downloaded that off of apple's website so its all good .
and I didnt have to wait an extra week or anything either, just had to pester the right compusa employee
right now os X is fun to play around in, but it probably won't be able to rival os 9.1 in speed, compatability, and general usability until 10.5 or so. if you have a dp machine like me, ya X is already generally faster than 9.1 now, but they've still got a lot of work to do to clean out bugs and things....its certainly stabile and everything, just need more drivers, more UI features (windowshade! and no I don't mean shareware) and more optimization
from the huge improvements seen between 10.0.4 and 10.1, hopefully 10.2 will be just as impressive....
Why Pay $19.99 or $25 or what ever they will charge for this upgrade, by mail. Why not just go to your local Apple Retailer, (i.e. CompUSA, FutureShop, Circuit City, etc.) they will have it for free, and they won't take your ticket.
