Missing sarcasm tags there? (Honest question)
|\ti have never EVER had a mac, i took me a while to jump from the old 95 to me then xp. i seem to have problems with my hardware, not my software.
i guess i am excited about leopard because it is new and i am hoping for hardware upgrades.
Ok now this I can kinda of understand, as there IS a big jump going from Windows to OS X, and in my opinion a GOOD jump, so yes I suppose waiting for the new version to do that jump might be reasonable there.
It is more than the OS X versions are just what there name really shows them to be, incremental upgrades IMO. Don't get me wrong there is some new stuff, I just don't think that new stuff is necessarily worth the money.
Now all that being said, when my primary day to day computer was my powerbook running 10.3 and the rest were running 10.4, I was looking forward to 10.5 as I was going to buy a family pack and upgrade everything at once as the price difference wasn't much between an individual license and a famiy pack, and it is worth it for future proofing.
But to be honest, I was more looking to upgrade then due to needing to for software, than because the OS was more impressive to me. Since getting my MBP and using that for my day to day laptop now, I have no real need to upgrade, nor much desire to, nor much money to, so I will wait till I need to before I upgrade, but I even doubt that will be as much of a problem, as the majority of the software issues I had before stemmed from people not wanting to compile for 10.3, which used the GCC3 compiler, whereas Universal Binaries you needed to use the GCC4 processor, and that won't be changing anytime soon. So it is likely that the only reason I had to upgrade will not be happening nearly as quickly this time around.
In as far as pricing is concerned, I think you will find that looking at the Apple store for their current upgrade pricing will give you a good bet. Which I believe is $129 for a single license, and $199 for a family pack(5 Licenses), remember me mentioning not much difference between the two?
