    I just picked up a copy of Aperture 2.1.1 from our University Store
    the box says not eligible for upgrade.
    but to what level?
    Does it mean:
    'No upgrades ever not even Aperture 2.1.X?'
    Or not to aperture 2.2.x.
    Or just not upgradable to Aperture 3.0?

    If i open the box and install i will know, but i wont be able to take it back for refund, to get the latest version..
    Does anybody know?

    I am certain that only excludes 3.0. The dot updates have always been complimentary. When 3.0 comes out, you will have to purchase a complete install disc and not simply the upgrade pack that will just modify the installed files and plugins.

    An Upgrade would be akin to 2.0-3.0. It would involve a whole new product. that almost always is paid for Updates are a different thing and would be 2.1-2.2 - they are inter-version updates that do not fundamentally alter the programs operation and tend to be free.

    The words "upgrade" and "update" may sound similar in context, but they mead different things.
