Does the one happening at Westworld here in Calgary count? If so, I'm going to drop in on one.

Hey Ryan, you're the guy I was just talking to. I am going to have to take that 17" PowerBook you're on into the back soon to install Panther!

Good to see we have a die-hard Mac fan waiting more than an hour in the store for Panther!

i just got back from the mother of all launch parties:

i was at the buffalo walden galleria apple store to pick up panther.

the lineup was nuts. there were easily over 150 people there lined up, which was astounding compared to the size of the place. we were killing some time, goin over to krispy kreme and stuff, and we got there about 15 mins. before 8. it was incredible, the lineup.

they were letting people in a few at a time, but i basically bought panther and left. there were demos of everything, and every computer was running panther, including the new G4 ibooks. really sweet.

there is a draw for someone to win an imac, and it was 10% off all hardware in the store for the night.

on my way out, they were handing out panther dogtags. i snagged two cuz my fiancee was with me.

...we were there waiting-- all this for software!!

it was pretty cool, though.

NOW y'all see what got me off 9 finally.

Panther is just plain terrific.
Just run those tuneup apps lots to keep the speed and yes Exposé is a real must for those with lots of apps and screen real estate that gets filled up.
We'd like to hear the perceived "speed up" from a variety of machines.
It's kinda hard NOT to be quick on a G5 so I'd like to hear tales about this quick cat on earlier Macs. :cool:

Wow... I got the short end of the stick. I was a few hours away from attending what might have been the biggest one:

I was @ the NY SoHo store today (more on that later), but I was contemplating hanging around for the launch, but I really had to hit the road and wanted to limit the night driving... :(

The staff that I was talking to were telling me that they were gearing up for madness... told me about the planned giveaways etc... :(

I should have stayed! :rolleyes:

H!

I was on my way out the door last night at around 6:30 pm heading to Carbon for the Panther event and I ended up getting paged to go into work. No problem, I thought, they're open until midnight. Of course that meant that I wouldn't get out of work until after 2 am. Why me?

Guess I'll head out today to get my copy. Although somehow it just doesn't seem the same.
