Walk in to the Mac store to buy OSX Tiger today and glance at the side panel system requirements. I have a G4 so not to worry. Get the puppy home and hubby wants to install it because obviously I am not in a big enough hurry to play with the new toy. I hear from the back don't have a DVD player right? I say right..didn't order one because I don't like sitting at a computer to watch a DVD. We have a problem...the installation disc is a DVD!!!!! Hubby is looking at the side of the box and notices it doesn't say boo about being a DVD. The receipt and the little white store tag say DVD.

Well now I am peeved having just spent $129 for a DVD I can't run on my G4. Go to tech support and sure enough more ticked off people who found out it was a DVD after they got it. Now, you can't order it on a CD just the DVD but....if you buy the DVD and then send it BACK with $10 you can have the CD!!!! Steam was leaking out at this point. On the Mac discussion boards the mod had locked the thread of complaints so no one else could complain. Great.... censorship and being penalized for no DVD drive. Grrrrr. By the time I mail it back via priority mail that is almost and extra $14. There is no indication of how long it will take to replace it either. This is the first time in almost 20 years that I am very disappointed in Apple.
