Many here, myself included, have been using OS 3.0 since the very first beta. Works great.

Is there any danger of installing this manually (after making sure it is the right one) or any difference compared to having Apple do it for us on June 17?

I haven't heard of any danger of installing it and you have to do it manually. There still could be a different one on the 17th which you could easily get from Apple. On the 17th all you will have to do is hit check for update with the GM one you have to hold down shift/option + click update then find the .ipsw and open it.

What do you mean do it manually? iTunes always does the install...

LOL at this thread. Search around the forums because the posts from march until a few days ago were all about 3.0 betas. Now its mostly 3GS talk :)

Manually as in holding shift/option + update or restore then finding the ipsw and opening it. On the 17th it will be automatic when you click check for update, but now it will just say you are up to date unless you do what I first said.
