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. for their personal, educational, and/or research use. The package will also feature a "Getting Started with Mac OS X" self-paced training CD-ROM presumably introducing 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 in the United States. 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 page, and orders will be shipped to the teachers’ school addresses. The X for Teachers program runs from 17-Oct-02 through 31-Dec-02.
