Mac OS X "TUAW talks about the growing swell of upcoming apps which will use Leopard APIs, and therefore, will require Leopard to run. I'm sure some users are wondering why developers are doing this, and some developers are wondering if they should do the same. Many early adopter end-users are planning to upgrade to Leopard regardless, but some might want to wait for various reasons. From the casual observer's perspective, the obvious thing to do is support older versions of Mac OS X in order to have access to a larger market. In a sense, that's true. But there's more to the story."

So when microsoft does the same thing with windows people call them out on it, but when apple does it they are praised for moving forward.. sheesh..

Atleast with Windows you only have to pay up every 4-5 years or so.

Now dont get me wrong, i dont like either of them. but still.
