Excellent. Pity the subsidiary action had to be dropped in order to
negotiate the main G3 agreement:
"The suit also sought damages for those customers who bought Macs that
performed worse when running OS X than when running Mac OS 9."
I would have just loved seeing Apple eat humble pie on that one.
As it is, the G3 OsX refund (or compensation payment) will get some
very prominent exposure:
"Apple will publicize the details of the deal in newspaper
advertisements and carry a link to the settlement terms on the front
page of its Web site."
Great work by the class action people. Maybe Apple will come down a few
steps from its ivory tower now. Maybe we'll see a class action to
extract compensation from Apple for forgetting to label Os X as a beta.
