Here's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I bought OSX on June 18 for $129 plus tax here in California. My local Apple store, name withheld to protect whomever, is a small store, run by Mac addicts. I buy from them to support what they do even if I can save a little online.

Tonight I stopped by and gave them a hard time about having to pay for the 10.2 release. They said they weren't happy about the situation either. To my surprise, they offered to sell me one of their upgrades for their cost. About $25US.

So, if you are willing to go for it, I suggest going for it. The worse they can say is no.

They also said that the Office 10 upgrade will be available soon for less than $150. May take them up on that too to upgrade my Office 2001. I haven't shopped for this one and don't know if it's a deal or not.

Three cheers for small business America!
