Hey. I just got in from meeting with my tax preparer and I saw the news. The official release date for Tiger is April 29th at 6 PM. I am going to assume that means 3 PM here on the Pacific coast, not sure how that works internationally. The price is $129.00 USD for a single user and $199.00 USD for a family pack (5 computers). Apple will also have a “bundle” of Tiger, iLife and iWork for $249.00 USD which saves you fifty bucks. System requirements are a G3, G4 or G5 with built-in Firewire and 256MB of RAM. OS X Tiger Server will also be released for $499.00 USD (10 client) and $999.00 USD (unlimited). Server will feature support for 64-bit processors and an iChat server. Tiger Server requires 4GB of hard disk space, wow! I am so excited. Now I need to get the day off so I can hit the Apple Store early. MacCast Tiger Release Edition to follow on May 1st. I know where some of my tax refund is going. ;)
Buy OS X Tiger from Amazon.com through the MacCast and save $35, plus support the show.
