Mac OS X Pre-Orders Begin Shipping On Thursday

We have gotten letters from several Observers and TMO staff who have received notice that their Mac OS X orders have shipped. The orders that we have been able to confirm through FedEx were sent out yesterday and set for "Service Type: FedEx 2Day Service" for Saturday delivery. This is a sample notice as forwarded to us:

MAC OS Xv10.0 RETAIL-USAM7686LL/A$ 129.00 1$ 129.00
MAC OS Xv10.0 RETAIL-USA; 1 shipped on 03/22/2001
Shipped via: FED EX SATURDAY DELIVERY Tracking Number: [Tracking Number Deleted]

Needless to say, each and every Observer writing in has been a little on the "excited" side.
