Apple have always played this game imho.  It seems that they give you just 
enough at each release so you don't move elsewhere.  The fact that they 
charged around £80 for an incrementally upgrade takes the piss!

Check out http://www.apple.com/macosx/ to see what you get.  The strongest 
sell appears to be on iChat.  It's instant messaging in bubbles.  Yippee 
:(  I have been a long supporter of Macs, but I just not seem to get 
excited by it anymore.

Time to learn more about Linux :)
