MacNN cites the first user report of Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) shipping from the online Apple Store.

One user's shipment confirmation for the product places it for delivery on April 25th, 2005 via Fedex Ground.

The official worldwide launch is to take place on April 29th.

Has Apple ever shipped a week early before?

Mine's gone from "Open" to "Processing Order."

Hopefully that means it'll ship today.

You guys suck :p I want mine too, it's still open. Nah, I am happy for all of you, that way you get to find all the bugs before us and we know what will erase our hard disks. :D

Same here - so assuming apple maintains its past patterns.... it ships today but FedEx will NOT get the package until Monday and I get it on Wednesday. They are really good at getting tracking numbers but missing the fed ex truck!

I want it NOW. I don't enjoy waiting, and it's not true that good things come to those who wait.

In the United States, Apple has simply changed "open" status to "Processing Order." It is their new terminology.

As far as those who shipped, that is amazing, and it ticks me off a bit. I want mine! :)

I'm not even getting it delivered, so I guess I'll be getting it on the 29th.

Hey, if I use my iPod to back up my HD, and I erase my HD and do a fresh install of Tiger, will iTunes erase my iPod when I first plug it in, as my library on my Mac is empty and iTunes syncs my iPod to my iTunes library?

I'm just preparing for the big day (29th for me). Hope you guys report the bugs here so that I can wait for updates before installation. :)
