Poll Preview: When Will X Mark the Spot? In November of 1999, we asked what your upgrade plans were with regard to Mac OS 9. The question is similar now, but in relation to Mac OS X - when, if ever, do you plan to install Mac OS X? You might first want to read through our examination of who should install the new operating system and who should wait, but please do come to the TidBITS home page and vote so we can judge how important Mac OS X coverage will be to our readers.
