    I like the fact they asked people to send it back... because that was really going to happen, fools :D

    If you don't get support for the package because they (Apple) can see on the license it's one of those 'early shipped ones', then I would most definately send it back.

    OS X has a license. They don't get all crazy with them like MS does though. ;) If you open up "about my Mac" and the click on the version # it'll show you the "build" and then your "license/serial" #.

    They do get really upset with people breaking NDA's and leaking OS updates like Tiger though. ;)

    They're covering their arse. Of course it will still be supported, they just don't want to get into any (more) trouble for releasing the o/s early.

    You mean Mac OS, Mac would indicate the Macintosh computer. Anyway, of course it has a license, would be pretty dumb to release it without one. It doesn't however, have a cd-key/serial.

    It does have a serial (at least my Panther copy has one), it just isn't input and part of a pain-in-the-arse authentication process like in the Windows world.

    I think you'll find that's the serial number of your hardware.
