Reader: call for wider Epson support/notices

Colin Ong notes Epson has provided a "non-specific, non-committal, non-informative standard corporate line" respone in his effort to determine whether Epson will provide OS X support for his Epson Stylus Photo 700 and other printers currently not supported or for which no support is planned: "I urge other Stylus Photo 700 owners to email Epson at esupport@ea.epson.com to lobby for support or at least an announcement one way or the other."

Apple supports \"real Aqua experience\"

Apple supports \"real Aqua experience\"

Apple has apparently worked things out with Eric Yang, whom we earlier today reported was prevented from developing an Aqua front-end for Mozilla and Netscape: "What Apple objected to was not Aquafying Mozilla, but rather the way I was doing it via emulation, thus not giving Mozilla users a pure Aqua experience. Apple is willing to provide information for creating real Aqua experience for Mozilla. Right now, my efforts are focused on an Aqua interface for Tenon's iTools, so work on Mozilla for the moment is in abeyance."

OS X v10.1 availability notes from readers

Readers are writes with various notes about availability of OS X v10.1, which is expected in some retail outlets tomorrow:

[Christopher Hammack] "I had hoped to get 10.1 from our local (generally very mac friendly) campus store. Unfortunately, the manager told me that they are only being allocated enough copies of the 10.1 upgrade to cover the current stock of 10.0.x. In other words, no go. I guess I will have to wait like a lot of other people." [Paul Brainerd] "I spoke with the Apple Rep at CompUSA in San Antonio this morning, and he indeed has the 10.1 upgrade in his hands and will be there to distribute it at store opening in the morning (Saturday). Can't speak for the rest of the Comp stores across the country, but this is a good sign."

Dantz: status update on OS X 10.1/Retrospect

Dantz tells MacNN that it continues to work very closely with Apple to make Retrospect available for Mac OS X. OS X v10.1 has important issues that need to be resolved: "For example, it is not possible to back up and restore hard links. This functionality is required to restore a complete, functioning Mac OS X system. The beta Retrospect client is also affected by these issues. Therefore, beta testers should not rely on the beta client for full system restores. Testing indicates that user created documents should restore correctly."

Apple legal shuts down Aqua skin for Netscape

Apple legal shuts down Aqua skin for Netscape

Apple legal has shut down Eric Yang's project for developing an Aqua skin for Mozilla and Netscape 6, as noted by a MacNN reader: "Eric Yang from developing an Aqua skin for Mozilla and Netscape 6. Although this skin needed work, it was the only aqua skin on the web (as far as I know). Moreover, due to the fact that Mozilla /Netscape 6 was open source, we very well could've seen this ship with future versions of Mozilla and Netscape 6 for OS X. Currently OS X builds of Mozilla and Netscape 6 have NO support for the Aqua UI. I would advise emailing Apple to complain about this. I know I will."
