Mac OS X 10.2.1 waarschijnlijk vandaag
Apple heeft waarschijnlijk per ongeluk een artikel in de KnowledgeBase geplaatst over de details van Mac OS X 10.2.1. Voornamelijk zal het in deze update mogelijk zijn om third-party branders te gebruiken. Er is redelijk veel nieuw en verbeterd in deze update. We kunnen daarom de update snel verwachten en misschien nog wel vandaag. Omdat artikel nummer 107036 inmiddels al is verwijderd van de Apple KnowledgeBase heb ik de tekst bij dit artikel gezet (lees daarvoor verder).
