I get it through my university's site license and Wolfram had a  
problem with the first batch of CDs that they send to universities,  
so they had to "re-do" them and they should be arriving next week. I  
would love to get it sooner via download, but they don't have a  
mechanism for that for site license users (Penn State University must  
pay them a boatload every year, yet I still have to wait). I have  
tried it under Rosetta and it is a little more than half as fast as  
it is on my 1.5 GHz G4 PowerBook. In addition, a few GUI things don't  
work in fancy notebooks that have buttons and the like.
