Why all the whining?
Authored by: BMarsh on Jan 07, '04 10:18:38AM

The point release being full price isn't much different then the Mac OS 7,8 and 9 era really...

7.5.whatever was free updates until 7.6 (about a year appart)
8.0 was another pay for release (about a year after 7.6)
8.1 was free, but was only 6 months after 8.0
8.5 was pay for, 6 months later free 8.6
9.0 was once again pay for, then it was about 2 years before Mac OS X came out which was pay for (all 9.x updates have been free, but essentially for most users 9.1 was the only required upgrade)

10.2 was over a year after 10.1 was released, 10.3 was over a year after 10.2 was released, so this fits with the earlier system.
