Mac OS X During the first two weeks of its release, Snow Leopard outsold Apple's two previous operating systems by a wide margin and set a record for the Mac maker. Sales of Apple's latest OS were more than two times higher than its predecessor, Leopard, and almost four times more than Leopard's predecessor, Tiger, according to the NPD Group, which tracks retail sales, excluding online sales.

According to Apple that is what you have to do. Tiger->leopard -> $30 snow leopard
Or
Tiger->$169 Snow leopard, ilife, iwork combo

But Tiger->$30 Snow Leopard works just fine.

But, yeah it is like an old school service pack. Something on the lines of XP SP 2 or NT 4 SP 4. I was sort of amazed at the time that they were free. Then again, Microsoft did charge $25 for Windows 98 Second Edition. Snow leopard is sort of like that.
