Until OS 10 is hopping, jumping and complete, I think they will continue to sell new copies to more converts, but the early users will get the same deal as last time. Since I signed on with the Beta, I clearly hope I am right
I predict the next "full price" version will be 10.5
I think that 10.2 may even be available as a download. Either that or the free/19.95 program. 10.5 will be the next full price update and that may not even cost $129, probably more around $89. No need to worry imspace2, no full price updates for a year or two.
Originally posted by i_am_a_cow i think there is a download avalible because when i was gonna download iphoto, the requirments said 10.2, and there was a link for an update (but it's 36 megs and i am at 56k
the requirement for iPhoto was 10.1.2....not 10.2....
but I don't think we'll have to pay for the update once it becomes available...I don't think we'll have to make a major payment for OS until we see something like 10.5....some sort of major revision....which could take a while I'm thinking...
well i forget where i read this (perhaps the register) but i heard that apple was holding off on the release of 10.2 because of this very issue. they were afraid people wouldnt pay for another upgrade so soon. so they have held off the release of 10.2 but continue to work on it like crazy sometimes two new builds every week.
