Mac OS X 10.1 is out this weekend in the U.S. and by all accounts it fixes most of the remaining issues with the existing version. Current users can just walk into an Apple reseller for an upgrade CD. Steve Jobs, in his announcement at Seybold, carelessly neglected to mention how people in the UK can get hold of it, so I called our local supplier first thing this morning. There was a delay getting through, and the person I spoke to apologised for it, “We have about 5 lines all ringing at the moment!”

“Ah”, I said, “they probably want to know the same thing as me. I’m interested in OS X version…”

“Monday!”, she interrupted, with a laugh.
