Probably a stupid question but I have never used a MAC and have an offer for an iBook with Jaguar.
as noted, yes u have to pay for a new OS. the OS X iterations are 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, and now 10.4, while windows has gone from 95, 98, Me, 2000, and now XP. the different updates that u may read about like 10.4.1 or 10.4.2, are the free updates and patches for the given OS generation, that kakaze had mentioned. in sum, ye su have to pay, and no it won't kill your wallet like a retail install disk for XP Home will do.
what is the offer on the table for the iBook? maybe we can help w/the "deal" being offered.
