Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y With Snow Leopard finally been given a release date and a price, the comparisons with Windows 7 are starting to pop up all over the place, especially focussing on the price aspect of things. While Apple's move to price Snow Leopard at 29 USD for Leopard owners is a very welcome one, the move doesn't mean that Microsoft is getting a price beating from Apple.

Why all the Apple bashing?

Like Thom, says, Apple hasn't released details about a possible Snow Leopard full version. Perhaps Apple was waiting to see what Microsoft would do.

It's also worth keeping in mind, while doing these costs comparisons that Apple has a smaller demographic than Microsoft does and there OS is still locked into their Apple Hardware. So for me, it makes perfect sense for Apple to charge more than Microsoft. Like another commentor pointed out, for Microsoft, the low cost is probably more circumstantial than pure unadulterated charity.
