OS X arrives on March 24th! System
If you live in the States (at a minimum; I can't check other countries ;-), and you ordered OS X 1.0 (or whatever they're going to call it) through the Apple store, it appears you'll have your three CD collection on Saturday the 24th!

Over on the MacFixIt boards (where I've been hanging out while MacNN's boards are down), reader MacXO pointed out that his order status shows "FedEx Saturday Delivery"on the top of the screen. I checked mine, and it has the same shipment method. Seems pretty solid evidence of a Saturday morning FedEx visit! Now I just need to call the store and change my "Ship To"to the house instead of the office.

You might want to check your orders as well, if you often ship to work for weekday deliveries. I might be wrong, but I'd rather have it show up at home on Monday or Tuesday than at the office on Saturday!

NOTE: You may want to call 1-800-Go-FedEx and verify that you live in a Saturday delivery area before making this change. Just press "8" to speak to a representative, and then ask about Saturday delivery and provide your zip code.

UPDATE - 10:45am: I just spoke with the Apple store. The rep at first claimed that there was no way they could possibly have Saturday delivery, as Apple didn't have a contract for that service with FedEx. I told him that was what the web site reflected, and he offered to change my order to read UPS if it would make me feel better ... I respectfully declined :-). After changing my address, he noted (with apparent surprise) that it was coming up coded "FED-S" shipping, which did, in fact, indicate Saturday delivery ... his last words were "Well, you learn something new every day..." ;-).

UK - Monday 26th :-(
Authored by: robh on Mar 16, '01 04:53:31AM

Got some mail from Apple Europe today that says delivery in the UK will be on Monday March 26th, and the courier would be TNT.

This is a disappointment because the UK postal system is efficient enough to do next day delivery (including Saturdays) to practically the entire country and Apple has chosen what must be a more expensive and slower route.
