Jaguar Free to Qualified U.S. Teachers -- Apple has unveiled "X for Teachers," a new program offering free not-for-resale copies of Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar for eligible K-12 teachers in the U.S. (and, after 24-Oct-02, in Canada) for their personal, educational, and/or research use. The package will feature a "Getting Started with Mac OS X" self-paced training CD-ROM that presumably introduces Mac OS X's key features; also included are Apple's digital hub applications iMovie, iTunes, and iPhoto.

To qualify, teachers must be currently employed as a K-12 teacher in a public, private, or charter school. Non-teacher school employees, student teachers, higher education faculty, home schools, resellers, and others are not eligible, and there's a limit of one copy of Jaguar per qualifying teacher. Orders must be placed via the X for Teachers Web pages, and orders will be shipped to the teachers' school addresses. The X for Teachers program runs through 31-Dec-02. [GD]
