As previously reported Mac OS X Tiger has started shipping and the first users are posting their screenshots and experiences with the new version of Mac OS X.
The final build is confirmed to be 8A428, the same as that being distributed illegally in P2P circles. Of note, Apple's legal representation has sent cease and desist letters to at least one of the offending Bittorrent distribution sites.
"Apple also demands all information related to the identity of the persons who created such torrent files and/or who uploaded the software referenced by those torrent files, as well as the identities of all individuals who participated in the uploading and downloading of Apple's software."
The site in question, however, does not appear to be taking the threat seriously.
Regardless, legitimate copies of Mac OS X have been distributed to end users at this time. MacRumors' forums have undergone a reorganization and all Tiger discussion can take place in the consolidated Mac OS X Forum. Please post your questions and experiences there. As always, please do not post any information on illegal distribution of copyrighted software.
