Sounds less than plausible to me, because they wouldn't be able to make a bootable image, and why would they offer a free burned one alongside the packaged version that will probably cost something?
I doubt that they'll be burning full copies of OS X 10.1, but rather a CD that allows you to upgrade the version you already have installed. Full release copies of 10.1 <i>in the box</i> will be available at the same time or soon thereafter.Originally posted by knighthawk
They will not allow just anyone to come in to the Apple Store and burn the CDs. How would the employees know that you actually purchased the software if they give you free access to copy it? It is more likely that they will have a counter with pre-burned, or mass-produced CDs that we trade for the coupon that came with OSX. Even if the CDs are pre-burned, and they charge you $2 (one for each CD), that is nothing. I am going to pay more in gas to get to the store than that.
