Poll Results: When Will X Mark the Spot? Two weeks ago, we asked when you planned to install Mac OS X to gauge the level of interest among TidBITS readers. Of the nearly 900 respondents, a third said they'd install the new operating system immediately, another 16 percent said they'd be getting to installation between now and July 2001 (when Apple plans to start putting Mac OS X on new Macs by default), and 46 percent said they'd wait until some time after that July. Two aggregate conclusions: 95 percent of respondents plan to install Mac OS X eventually, and roughly half of those people plan to do so by July. [ACE]
Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail
If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.
(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)
