I agree. Right now I'm on a trial .mac and it rules. But 100 dollars is a little too much. If it's 50 I'll think about it.

Refunds please! :D

But seriously, I don't see it happening. The next version of X for $60, well, it certainly should be for those of us who had to pay the full amount to go from 10.1 to 10.2, I feel Apple owe us a cheaper update next time round.

I agree. If apple could squeeze 120 out of us this time around, then whats to stop them from charging 120 for 10.3?

Really, there's nothing stopping them from doing just that. But I really don't think they will.

Here's my speculation on the subject.

There will be a "free" upgrade to 10.3 for people who bought 10.2 or a system that came with 10.2 installed. You'll need to hang onto those upgrade coupons that came with your purchase to get the upgrade.

People that bought a system that came with 10.1 will have to shell out $130 to use 10.3, even those who got a "free" upgrade from 10.1 to 10.2.

To me, this kind of system would be fair. You pay full price for 0.2 upgrade, but pay a nominal "free" charge for a 0.1 upgrade. So based on what you've purchased, you'll get every other major update for "free".

NOTE - by "free", I mean $20 for s/h. Or if you get your butt to an Apple Store (or CompUSA), they'll hand you a CD.

haha yeah right. they wont do that and there is no need for them to do that. If you dont like .mac then dont buy it. I think what they will do is add tons more features to it in the future to make .mac more appealing. just have to wait and see. maybe macworld san francisco.
