The EECS Department is pleased to announce initial support for MacOS
X Leopard (10.5.3 or better). We also would like to announce that
a limited number of Leopard licenses and media are available for
purchase at the Helpdesk in 395 Cory.
With the 10.5.3 update to MacOS X Leopard, Macs are once again able
to mount shares on our department fileservers, home.eecs and
project.eecs. It appears that significant improvements to X11
have been done in Leopard since the initial release as well.
Licenses for MacOSX Leopard are available for purchase at the
Helpdesk for $39; the media (the actual Install DVD) will be $15
extra. For comparison, note that the retail price of a license
with a DVD is $129. If you wish to purchase just the license, you
may check out a loaner DVD from the Helpdesk for installation.
Purchasers may pay by chartstring or personal check (there is a small
surcharge for paying by check), but we recommend calling ahead to
make sure we still have licenses or media available.
The Helpdesk can be reached at 2-7777.
