Mac OS X Public Beta Set for 13-Sep-00


At this week’s Seybold Seminars in San Francisco, keynote speaker and Apple iCEO Steve Jobs announced the company would release its long-awaited public beta version of Mac OS X on 13-Sep-00. The announcement lets Apple fulfill its promise to get the public beta out in "Summer 2000," as the season ends in the northern hemisphere about a week later. The full launch of the software is slated for January of 2001. Jobs didn’t specify whether the beta software would be available for a free (but extremely large) download, or whether it would be sold to users.
