Mac OS 9.2 Slides Onto New Power Mac G4s

Mac OS 9.2 Slides Onto New Power Mac G4s -- With nary a mention in Steve Jobs's Macworld Expo keynote address, Apple last week began shipping computers with Mac OS 9.2 installed. The new version of the operating system is reportedly a minor enough upgrade that it could have been called "9.1.1" if not for the likelihood it would prompt jokes about "911" (an emergency phone number in most of the U.S.). Although Apple has provided no release notes about what changed in Mac OS 9.2, reports indicate that it contains some bug fixes, support for the latest Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver) machines, and improvements that will be required for use with Mac OS X 10.1, slated for release in September 2001. It's a moot point for most people right now, since Mac OS 9.2 is currently available only with the new Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver). [MHA]
