    and doesnt check for leopard

    why?

    for the same reason you "could" use a single license osx disc on multiple computers instead of a family pack. if they don't enforce that then why would they enforce the 29 dollar upgrade any different?

    its all about integrity

    thoughts?

    Im sure you're right but Im not so sure it matters. Since Snow Leopard requires an Intel Mac its a fair bet that most people will have Leopard anyway. Obviously there are some Intel Tiger users but I would imagine most have already upgraded to Leopard.

    I would agree with you except Apple's made upgrade discs that required the previous OS installed since 10.1. The upgrade disc idea is not new. This time, it just happens to be available to a larger percentage of consumers.

    Apple wouldn't specifically mention the two upgrade paths if the discs weren't different.

    But we won't know until the upgrade media starts to arrive and/or the installation guide is posted to Apple's support Web site.

    apple is too lazy to protect it :D well this is kind of better for us as they will have more time to focus on real programming :)
