Tiger 2 million

Apple today announced it expects to deliver over two million copies of Mac OS X version 10.4 "Tiger" by the end of this week, including copies sold at retail, copies delivered under maintenance agreements and copies bundled with Mac systems shipped, making Tiger Apple's fastest selling OS release ever. Developer support for Tiger is also setting new records with hundreds of developers including Microsoft and Adobe announcing support for Tiger. To date third party developers have released more than 400 Dashboard widgets, 550 Automator actions and 40 Spotlight plug-ins for Tiger. "The response to Tiger is off the charts," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "Critics are raving, customers are delighted and developers are creating hundreds of widgets and applications that take advantage of Tiger's incredible innovations like Spotlight, Dashboard and Automator."

"With the new technologies in Tiger, we worked closely with Apple to ensure that Office 2004 customers would benefit by making it even easier to search, share and manage information," said Roz Ho, general manager of the Macintosh Business Unit, Microsoft Corporation. "Whether searching for an Office 2004 document using Spotlight or synchronizing data in Entourage to another supported device, the innovation in Tiger means Office for Mac users will be more productive now and in the future."

"Tiger is an excellent release and will be relied on by millions of Adobe customers who, as creative professionals, change the way the world looks every day," said Shantanu Narayen, president and chief operating officer at Adobe. "The combination of Adobe Creative Suite 2 and Tiger delivers a powerful design and publishing platform that will accelerate creative workflows worldwide."

Tiger delivers more than 200 new features including Spotlight, a desktop search technology that lets users instantly find anything stored on their Mac, including documents, emails, contacts and images; and Dashboard, a new way to instantly access important information like weather forecasts and stock quotes, using a dazzling new class of applications called widgets.
