Mine is shipped via purolator.

I just noticed that you are in Canada. Embarassed

It seems like you guys are getting them a little earlier.

Nope; it's just that Apple is not giving us the straight goods. Yes they shipped yesterday, but by ground transportation from Texas. (Apple website says they shipped overnight courier yesterday and will arrive today, but I called Purolator and they said this was not true.) If we're lucky our Leopards will arrive tomorrow as scheduled.

This may seem off topic, but the review done by the WSJ reviewer was very good. He mentioned using Fusion with Boot Camp that comes preinstalled with Leopard. Is it possible to use Fusion while having my Ministack as the boot drive for my Mac Mini, connected by firewire?

I don't know this one DRII, because I detest Windows. If I were you, I'd re-post it on the Boot Camp forum - you'll probably get a pretty swift answer.

Hell, I just think we are lucky to be living in these times. Doesn't the world of modern logistics amaze you guys? It's hard to believe all these shipments are floating around and that they will all be delivered around the same time tomorrow. That sort of blows my mind.

And now, back to my cave. Wink

Pogue has another article up that deals with some of the smaller goodies. It's a good read.

Give em a day or two, I'm sure they'll fix it once they get their hands on the final release.
The above goes for most 3rd party software, the authors I've corresponded with pretty much all told me the same thing. Once they get a copy of the "Final" release they'll make the neccessary tweaks and release new versions that will be Leopard compatible.

I see. Well, I hope Purolator comes through for you today. Mine is "On FedEx vehicle for delivery" as of 7:22 AM this morning.

I got my copy this morning. I installed it on my iMac already, and it's pretty slick. I'll probably do my MBP next, but I'm going to clean install that, then manually merge my information, which might take a few hours.

Leopard is slick. It took me about an hour and fifteen minutes to get up running on my Intel mini. For me, Front Row was worth the price of admission. It's great! But there is a ton of other great stuff. I'm going to move on to my PPC mini and PowerBook now. What a fun sick day! Very Happy
