Great, I hope they manage to get quite a lot of those pre-orders out in time. I cancelled my pre-order this morning because we discovered (last week) that Apple's government rates now extend to state and local governments, so my wife was able to buy it at the government EPP rate, which is $64.50.

Then it took 3 days to get through to actually cancel my order (and upgrade the shipping on my wife's order from the default ground to next-day). You would think in this day and age you'd be able to do that sort of stuff automatically online without having to wait in a phone queue - maybe there's some other technology they need to license from Amazon. Most of the day yesterday the phone queue for order changes was over an hour.

My wife eventually got through at 7am Central (queue was only 10 minutes then) to make the order changes.

The sooner it gets here, the better - it's not just that I'm anxious to have Jaguar, but I've got a complete system rebuild (repartitioning, clean install, etc) I want to do when it arrives, and I'm looking forward to the day when my computer is once again The Way I Like It.

I pre-ordered..

..the day Jaguar was announced at MacWorld, from Apple.com, and my order still says "being assembled". I wish my Jaguar pre-order would be shipped early! :p~

I just spoke with the people at the Online Store and they said that no copies the stand alone Jag had been shipped and that they would not until the 24th. (Don't flame me. That is just what the lady told me.) I ordered mine on the 17th of July and she said it would not be released until the 24th. However, they did say that my iPod case and wired remote/ear buds would be shipping today!!!!!

Hi, I got this from Apple UK today...

>> Unfortunately the expected release date for Mac OS 10.2 is 24th August and
we will be unable to dispatch it before that date. It will however be sent
by post so that it will reach you as soon as possible- just a little more
time to wait! <<

I certainly hope that they mail it before the 24th so we GET IT on the 24th!

i ordered it on the phone today along with idvd 2 upgrade. i said, so will they ship separately or do i have to wait til the 24th when jag ships? she ignored the date and just said they would ship one at a time... "idvd upgrade will be out in a couple days and jaguar... late august"

doesn't mean a whole lot. but if they were so bound to the 24th, why didn't she say it? unless... they won't even be able to get all of them out (the ones that have been ordered so far) by then. ie, they'd be even later perhaps....?

just a thought

I ordered mine on the 17th too ... no sign of shipment as yet (dammit), although I wouldn't go by what the reps are saying ... they're notoriously misinformed. I remember calling about my just-arrived copy of 10.1 last year and being informed that I couldn't possibly be in possession of it as it hadn't shipped yet.

I'm gonna guess that anyone who actually *asks* is going to be told that it won't ship until the 24th, simply because if Apple officially stated it was shipping before that date their phone lines would be jammed with people wanting to know why their copy hadn't shipped yet.

However, with it turning up in new machines and the reports of people's orders having shipped (and shipments already being made to resellers in preparation for the 24th) I suspect that unofficially, off the record, they're going to get at least some copies out early to people, just to spread the shipping load out a bit (i.e. so they don't end up having to ship every single pre-ordered copy on the 24th which, being a Saturday, would mean trailer after trailer full of stuff sitting waiting for Fedex pickup until Monday).

10.2 on iBooks

I use an iBook (500MHz, 384MB RAM) and am currently using 10.2. It runs really fast on here, much faster than 10.1.5. Everything is quicker, tho I do notice a slight slowdown on boot.. but having to reboot is rare unless I install software that requires it. I'll never go back to 10.1. Apple did an awesome job on this one!!

that would be quite difficult, what happens when Mr Doe orders before Mrs. B? do they sit around and wait to see if a Mr Cheese will order before they ship out on D's?

I'm running it on a Blue & White G3 that has been upgraded to a G4/500 with ATA 100 and 768MB of RAM.

The BAD:
My XLR8 Mach Speed software is unable to load/run. Given the company's status, I doubt that I'll see an update. I have no way of knowing the status of my card or its cache, though it is apparently running at 500MHz with 1MB of cache according to Apple Profile.

Jaguar has the worst Happy Mac Screen EVER. The screen is soooo bad....how bad is it? The Happy Mac Screen is so bad...I have the urge to damage my hardware in hopes of getting a Sad Mac Screen instead of having to look at the new Happy Mac Screen.

MacReporter doesn't work, but the author says he's going to release an update soon.

It feels faster, but MOX Optimize doesn't run (even after I installed the BSD Subsystem). And much of what is supposed to make Jaguar faster was already enabled in MOX, so it only really feels faster in a few other situations. The upgrade to 10.1 seemed like more of a speed bump....of course those of you who can do Quartz Extreme are going to be much further accelerated.

Show Info now goes back to the old method of opening a new window for each item. I liked it better when it would only open one window.

What happened to Dock Scraps? In very early versions of Jaguar, you could drag minimized items out of the Dock and onto the Desktop.

Still no Window Shade.

It would be nice if you could right click on the Finder Icon in the Dock and select "Hide Others".

THE OK:
I use Office vX, so the Mail.app improvements are meaningless. iCalendar is meaningless. I use iView Media Pro, so iPhoto is meaningless. I use Proteus so iChat is meaningless. I use Watson, so the new Sherlock is meaningless, but I like some of Sherlock better than Watson...I have a feeling I may end up switching to Sherlock as more modules are developed for it. The Desktop randomizer sucks compared to the free 3rd party app, ChangeDesktop.

In short, I'm not a big fan of any of the iApps, except iTunes. These new iApps are supposed to be a big part of the $129. Hmmm....I would be more inclined to pay $129 for Apple *not* to release apps that are going to compete with superior 3rd party apps.

THE GOOD:
Faster in things that were problems in the past, like dealing with windows that had lots of files. Other minor cosmetic tweaks really improve things. Networking is really kick ass.

The new calculator totally rocks. The new Flurry Screen Saver. Search and Find in the Toolbar.

HEY! I have the same machine with just about the same upgrade....(though mine is a 550 ZIF chip, and not an ata card)

So i'm hoping my experience is a little different.

>the Search and Find in the Toolbar may be worth $20 of the upgrade, that's going to kick it here in the office!

I ordered my copy of Jaguar on July 31st, but my credit card still hasn't been billed?? It may be because I ordered it using the educators discount or that they don't charge me until it ships. Who knows?? Has anyone else had this same problem?

p.s. On a completely unrelated note, Phish is back together! WOOOOW!!

i'm running 6c115 on my ibook 500 with 192 megs of ram and it runs great, much better that 10.1.5... progs open much, much faster (i don't even see the loading window for ms word anymore!). new apps are really great, i especially like ichat. i've only noticed a few very minor bugs so far, but overall, it's a great upgrade. well done apple!

A question about the jaguar update. Is it a full installation disc or a upgrade cd. I have not seen anything about upgrade cd's.

Cheers

It's two full version CD's w/an upgrade option on them. So you can do either clean or full installs. There is no sole upgrade option. Everyone has to pay upmteen dollars.
