Hello everyone, I'm a brand new member, just created an account because I wanted to pose this question for a discussion. I was reading this blog post, linked by digg http://iz-iz.blogspot.com/2007/10/some-pay-for-it-while-most-get-it-free.html In no way does this blog have any authority, but I thought it raised an interesting point, but wanted to get the opinion of the mac community. So here's the question: What is the difference between Microsoft's Service Packs and Apple's [annual] updates to OSX? Is there a vast difference between these updates? What are your thoughts? Thanks.
