    When this article was first posted there were a load of inaccuracies in it, I doubt the write even used Leopard before he started writing. Initially he even said that a family pack cost $500. :rolleyes:

    And it's still wrong after the correction. Single user is $129.00, family is $199.00.

    At least it's close. 1 cent off or 1 dollar, can't remember which, isn't something I'm going to be picky about.

    It wasn't that badly written (I usually HATE Wired articles) and I did learn some new info like memory randomization which "protects against buffer-overflow attacks." I'd like to know how it does this but it sounds good.

    Edit:

    Memory randomization (ASLR) coming to Mac OS X Leopard

    An even better and excellent article on the security of Leopard and why it's worth $129 just for it. How Leopard Will Improve Your Security

    In the case of $x.99, most people just round up a cent to make it a whole number. But Apple's prices are the exact dollar amount, which means the writer probably thought the prices were $x.99. Considering the writer had to correct the prices once already, it just goes to show how sloppy the writer is.
