I'm not sure if anyone can answer this right now, but maybe with the release of Final Cut Pro X, it might help. Let's say I bought the iLife or iWork apps from the app store. When the next version comes out, will it just download or will I need to pay to upgrade again. Reason I'm asking is I lost my iLife '09 disc and still using iWork '08. Should I buy the discs at a discount on eBay or purchase through the App Store to possibly get future updates for free?
