    When Tiger is released...
    Being the Mac fanatic that I've recently become,lol, I've been reading threads on this board and others from the day(and hour, 8pm) that Panther was released. It seemed cool that so many people rushed out to go to the Apple Store or another store to get the copy.

    Do you think it'll be the same when Tiger is released? Will there be a mad rush to the Apple stores to get a copy? What will it be like in the stores? Could they run out of copies? Will you go out and get a copy, or stay with Panther? Basically, what was it like for those of you that went to the Apple stores as soon as Panther came out?

    I went to compusa, it was sorta mad, but not as bad as I thought itd be. as far as when tiger comes out, Ill be with panther for a few more days, maybe longer, just depends, but Im getting tiger for free. I had a recent dev release installed, but went back to panther.

    I was at the apple store a few minutes from my house and there was a very long line of people waiting outside for the store to open to get Panther. I imagine it will be the same for Tiger. They stock up pretty heavily in the stores so I highly doubt they will run out

    I'll never stand in line to buy Tiger when Apple releases it. I can wait until I'm good and ready, then order it online.

    lol, yes actually i bet it will be worse...

    and everyone wants to get tiger.. the thing about mac OS updates is its always an improvement/addition, you never change antyhign drastically or loose anythign you want.

    I'll have to order it online because I live in a dead-end county where nobody sells anything good.
