I believe Michigan, for example, is specifically telling new students NOT to get Vista.

I emailed a bunch of schools about Vista, since I use it too, and all of them said it shouldnt be problematic.

Same with USC. Vista makes me mad - it is so trying to copy mac, it's not even funny.

Soon the Microsoft people will be mad when they find out that Max OS X Leopard is even better than Vista. It's good to leave copy cats in the dust.  8)

We have to wait an extra few months for Leopard, though... >:(

No, it will likely come out in early June during the developers conference. That's only one month from now. I've been telling my family to hold off their computer purchases until the new OS comes out. It will likely include new computers as well.

You think leopard will be out in June?  The mac site says Oct...it'd be really great if it came out in June and I could get the mac and not worry about boot camp being in beta on tiger for CLS.

I don't know that much about computers and am wondering why schools aren't ready for Vista.  What is the difference between that and XP that schools can't handle it.

I read on their site that it will come out in late Spring. Early June is late Spring so that fits the bill. Where does it say on the Apple website that the new OS will come out in October? Did they move the date up?
