Wincent Colaiuta has seen and reviewed the new Mac OS

Wincent Colaiuta has seen and reviewed the new Mac OS but you can't read the review. He's encrypted the whole thing using PGP and he's not releasing the key until the OS is released. He says he's done this to avoid law suits from Apple.
I say he's begging for hits.
If he wanted to avoid lawsuits, he could just wait to publish the review...

From wincent.org: "Looks like the info is starting to leak onto the net. The cat is out of the bag. So here's the passphrase for the encrypted review (final.pgp.txt) that I posted yesterday: "One sunny day in March some - but not all - of our wishes came true..." (omitting the quotes)."

Good self-promotion, baaaad journalism, IMHO. Of course, Wincent never claimed to be a journalist.

Hmm...I'm heading to Carracho land to grab a copy of 4K78 so I don't have to wait until Monday to get my copy (the store I ordered from is closed on Saturday).

You should have ordered from the Apple Store. They upgraded everyone's OS X order to Saturday delivery, gratis.

As for me and my weak beige G3, we're waiting for 10.1. Or until I get a better video card, whichever comes first.

gsxl, good enough to use - but not good enough to pay for?
