Mac OS X Snow Leopard for $29

iPhone news may be the talk of the Apple blogosphere in the wake of WWDC, but attention must also be paid to the announcement that the next version of Mac OS X, nick-named Snow Leopard, will retail at $29 for existing Leopard users. This is huge news, as far as I’m concerned, a real concerted effort by Apple to make certain that their entire install-base migrates to the new OS. And, given all of the improvements that have been made, the $29 price-tag is a steal.
