Several readers are reporting that their copies of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger has shipped from the Apple Store. This first batch of Mac OS X copies are expected to start arriving today. Several users have already received their copies of Mac OS X 10.4 due to some unintentional early shipments.

On April 29th, Apple will be officially hosting the worldwide release with events at Apple Stores and Apple Retailers. There will be drawings for iPods and PowerBook giveaways as well as free door prizes. These are expected to include Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger T-Shirts.

There is ongoing discussion about users' Mac OS X Tiger in the MacRumors Forums.

First!

Mine just arrived this second!


update: install is already finished. everything is exactly as I left it. only difference I see is the spotlight in the upper corner and dashboard in my dock. i might go back and do a clean install to make it more work (and because I want to clean off a lot of old junk).

What to do, what to do...

Should I ditch my friends on Friday and head down the Apple Store to pay $140 (with tax) for Tiger when I could order it online for $69? I might get a free T-shirt and some other goodies, but is that worth almost double the price? :rolleyes:

Tomorrow

I should get mine tomorrow. I am going to the Apple store too! I want to win a new Powerbook or a Mac Mini or WHATEVER! I hope they do the grab bag thing too. Wouldn't be awesome to by a grab bag and have a iPod in it? :D

Mine is on the truck!

Any minute now and I am going to be very excited! :D

I remember this last time with Panther. I love it. Poor folks over on the other side have to wait another two years. :p

I'm excited to hear about everyone's experience. I hope that the bug count is minimal and that 10.4.1 arrives soon to squash them anyway. I won't get Tiger until the Final Cut Suite is available so I can do a clean install.

Nooooooo.....you don't have to actually *buy* tiger to qualify goodies do you?

Not that I don't want it - I just want to wait to buy an iBook

This little off the topic but I am too going to that Apple event and I did order edu copy on line.
My question is, do you need to purchase anything to be eligible to win something or even to get the free dogtags and t-shirts.

Mine is shipping as well, but....

....I'll get the German version since I ordered from the Swiss store. :(

I know it's sad, but after years of having Mac OS X I just don't know whether I can change the language. I mean, not the keyboard layout but the language in which all dialogs, menus etc come in.

While I'm German I'm so used having everything in English. German translations of the menus are usually so ...clumsy. Do I need to return it and wait another eternity for Tiger?

My Tiger is on the truck to my house right now

The fed ex site a few days ago told me that expected arrival date was April 29. I checked the status this morning and it said my package (Tiger) was out for delivery; it will be there when I get home........
