    It might be possible to use the $29 disc but is is legal?:

    If you buy it in the store they do ask you if you have Leopard. That's their very technical way to check to see if you qualify :p

    Do you like your Mac? Are you excited about the new OS X 10.6?

    If so then you probably appreciate the hard work of those who developed it.

    You could probably save some hard earned cash by purchasing a legit copy of 10.5 for a good price before you buy the $29 10.6 disc. I'll venture to guess that there will be some good pricing available on 10.5 now that 10.6 is released.

    Do the right thing.

    Just searched eBay for "OS X 10.5 Retail" and found quite a few at a great price.
