Upgrading to Mac OS X Lion.
Right now i have a "24 iMac running Leopard (10.5.8) I never upgraded to Snow Leopard. So i was curious if it will be cheaper to upgrade to Snow Leopard for $30 and then upgrade to Lion once it comes out. I may be wrong but i thought that i heard or read somewhere that it is cheaper to upgrade from the next recent OS (ex. Leopard > Snow Leopard or Snow Leopard > Lion) rather than skipping one (ex. Leopard > Lion). Any ideas??
Thanks in advance

My recommendation is "Wait and see".

Lion may be sold in Mac App Store and so far we observed that Apple sells its softwares cheaper on MAS (such as Aperture, $79 on App Store but $199 on stores and Apple Remote Desktop again $79 on app store but $499 on stores (I don't know if they are exact same versions but App Store says it is unlimited edition) - huge gaps)
We don't and can't know if it will be cheaper to buy snow leopard first, but I don't think so (yeah, I know this is a contradiction to my first paragraph but I read so much articles like that in last 2-3 days )
