    Welcome to Darwin!

    There is nothing unusual here. You only get the MOTD (message of the day..Welcome to Darwin) if you connect via ssh or telnet. If you just open a terminal window in OS X you will not see this. It is a message for remote users only. Y

    If you can't get the 10.1 upgrade....

    This is outrageous! Apple have fu*ked this one up big time! Apple has made it really difficult for early adopters to upgrade, yet made it easy for the late adopters. Go to any Apple retailer today and you would find Box sets available at $129 a pop but few free upgrade CD's. To top it...
