It is standard in M$ Windows and Linux. 2004-07-30 1:32 pm This isn’t exactly relevant to Safari, but I’m curious: If I buy an Apple machine now, will I have to shell out the over $100 in a few months to get 10.4? Is there a free upgrade to those who purchase a Mac with 10.3 in the few months leading up to Tiger’s release? 2004-07-30 1:40 pm Yes you will have to pay for an upgrade. You only get a free upgrade if you buy a Mac after a date is set for Tiger’s release. However if you use an educational discount you can get Tiger for $69, or if you use a government employee discount you get it for $64. This is assuming it will be $129. Another hint is if you order online Apple does not ask for proof that you are a student or fed employee. 2004-07-30 1:56 pm Yes, you’ll have to pay, but you’re basically asking a question that’s not too far from this: If I buy a PC now, will I have to pay to get Longhorn? When Apple sets a date (say, in January they announce March 24 is the availability date), then you can buy a machine and get the upgrade (historically). If you buy a machine now, you may be using 10.3 for 11 months though, so… Besides, 10.3’s the best OS out there. 10.4 just widens the gap. 🙂 It’s not like you’d be getting a piece of doo doo through which you’ll suffer for 11 months if you bought your computer now. 2004-07-30 8:21 pm Well yes but your question is wrong. It should be: “If I buy a Mac now, will I have to pay for Tiger when it comes out in 6 months to a year?” That makes it more obvious that it’s a “yes”. The soonest it’ll be out is in February ’05 after MacWorld. But considering they said “first half of ’05” that’s really saying “it will be out no later than June/July ’05” so it could almost be a year away. Usually when Apple releases an OS, if you just bought a computer you can get the new OS for an upgrade price ($24,95 IIRC). Uusally it’s about 30 days before the OS is released. So the point is, you have a while before Tiger. It’s not even in Beta! 2004-07-31 6:56 pm Yes, you must pay when you upgrade, as everybody has told you before. Yes, with Apple you get an upgrade every year or so that delivers real improvements, not just zillions of hotfixes. I am always amazed when people gripe endlessly about Windows security problems and general backwardness, and then gripe again when they find out that better quality costs something. There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch!
