This is GREAT to see !!!!

Thank you to ALL involved.

EDIT

Now it looks like there are 350 CD's in that box. (14 groups of 25)
I bet they have 5 to 10 of those boxes too. (1750 to 3500 CD's)

/EDIT

All speculation but still... :)


Regards,

Tim

I counted 10 alternations of something like 30 each which would give 300 per layer. Where does your 600 come from?

Edit: oh, and since the bottom of that layer is white and the box clearly looks brown to me I am willing to bet at least one chocolate chip cookie there's more than one layer per box.

And no, I don't think we're looking at thousands of pre-release CDs...

"NEAR the two years anniversary? We passed that one WEEKS ago!!!"
Say... to be more precise, shouldn't you have said:
- "Two weeks" ago?

@Entzhilla

Actually I wasn't moaning about OS4 coming without a manual... just moaning generally.

Nothing seems to come with a proper paper manual anymore, so i'm pleased to see you plan to include one in the final release.

@pixie:

No, my comment was syntactically correct, afaik.

We passed that one weeks ago.

Note difference between:
We passed that _one week_ ago
and
We passed _that one_ weeks ago

What I COULD have done is add a "several" to "weeks", but weeks is already plural, so that should be redundant information.

I guess I could be wrong, english not being my first language and all

Hi Sbaitso,

Here's my complaint: THOSE INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS ARE TOO HARD TO FOLLOW!!!!!!!!

(You just CAN'T please ALL of the people ALL of the time!!!!)

The actual product is sitting there. It exists. After some of the past experiences and promises made it's reassuring to be able to see the pictures, even for those who didn't doubt it would happen.

*Pause for the "Those photos could be faked!!" posts*


"The Moon landing", UFOs, Elvis dead, and BigFoot, well, here's more fool fuel!


No, no, ... the (toxic Uranian) vapours have been blown away by the grosses of FANS!!!!!!

Hi Jose,

I wholeheartedly agree!!


Hi Chris_Y,

Love the pic, how about a guy who lives in an apartment building, and has a bank of those boxes? (BTW, might want a cap or helmet, AND a Champagne bottle!)

I intend to print up a copy, cut it out, fold it, then put it next to my Amiga where I can open it and close it from time to time and pretend I have the real thing. Mine is a sad life, really.


Hi Marky_D_Sahd,

Print it out, apply sticky stuff, put on those free AOL discs!!!! Then feed trolls!!!!!!!!!! (...and pity their teeth and stomachs...intestines...NOT!)

We might make a few updates available, but only critical stuff. We're not going to do any regular updates or anything like that.

I don't mean to nag or anything, I'm just a bit curious, if you could define "critical stuff"?

Would USB, and IDE drivers with functional DMA be considered "critical"? I know I wouldn't call it "critical," IMHO it'd just be cool to have as soon as they're deemed "releaseable."

The manual comes with the final release. This is a prerelease.

Printed manual with the official release? Coolish! Those things are becoming near-extinct these days... But still no box, right? A box would look sweet in the ol' bookshelf!
