MacScoop claims to have uncovered a report that indicates Apple may offer the final version of its popular Boot Camp software for users of Mac OS 10.4 "Tiger" for $29.99 upon its release when Leopard ships.
Boot Camp, currently in public beta, allows Intel Mac owners to boot their machine into Microsoft Windows XP. The terms of the public beta expire upon the next release of the software or September 30, 2007, whichever comes first.
If true, the move would be reminiscent of Apple deciding to offer iChat AV for Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar users for a $29.99 upgrade fee after a public beta, whereas users upgrading to Mac OS 10.3 Panther received the software included in the OS. Boot Camp will be included with Mac OS 10.5 Leopard.
