The Register UK is reporting that Phil Schiller has hinted that Apple will be making Mac OS X the default OS in its machines in March, 2002. The article doesnit source the comments. From the article:
Phil Schiller, Appleis VP of worldwide marketing, has gone on the record to suggest March as the date when new Macs ship with OS X as default.
Macs have shipped with both the old and the new operating systems preloaded since May, but with OS 9.x as default, and Apple has been pretty cagey so far on even suggesting a date for the big switch.
You can find some additional comments about Mac OS X in the full (but short) article. Thanks to Observer "Lester" for alerting us to the Registeris article.
