In Celebration of OSX Leopard…

Have any annoying Macazoid friends who picked up one of these shirts at the Leopard release party?

Doesn’t that piss you off? Not only that you’re friends with such a nerd, but that Apple would deface such a great movie by stealing the tagline and applying their own nauseating schtick to it?

Well, now you can fight back!

  1. OMG!!! That is most awesome thing I have ever seen!!

  2. LOL!! I love my mac, but that’s funny…

  3. I’m not sure where you pulled $170 from. Leopard’s list price is $129. Amazon sells it for $109. Anyone that bought a new Mac in October can get it for $10 from Apple.

    Also why do you figure it should be free? There’s a whole lot in Leopard beyond bug fixes. http://arstechnica.com/reviews/os/mac-os-x-10-5.ars

    By the way, I do think the shirt is cool even if I don’t agree with the sentiment.

  4. Here it is! The winner of the most lame ripoff of a ripoff t-shirt!

    $170? You keep being SO MUCH documented. Do you know Google?

  5. My bad apple fans…that was a misquote. I shall fix that in the article immediately…

    Well, I suppose that I figure a point release of a product should be a free upgrade, as it generally is with Windows Service Packs. OSX -> OSX.5 isnt as big of an update as XP->Vista, for example but the price for upgrading is about the same.

    Apple for whatever reason (probably so as to retain the name OS TEN) has been incrementing it’s paid system upgrades by point increments rather than full integers. The version number is just part of the name. They could have called it anything. What matters is what features they include. Each “point” release of OS X has had significant features and enhancements. They are a hell of a lot more comprehensive than WIndows service packs.

    In between point releases Apple provides numerous free downloadable software updates. OS X 10.4 (Tiger) has had ten so far and is currently at verson 10.4.10. In addition there have been other free security and compatibility updates that haven’t bumped the version.

    Don’t expect radical changes with each Mac OS system release . The last big change occurred when Apple transitioned he Classic Mac OS to OS-X. Now its just deliberate incremental improvements. And that’s a good thing. Change for the sake of change is just confusing and a source of trouble.

    The nice thing about Mac system upgrades is that they come every 18 months. The system is in good enough shape that if you don’t feel there are enough improvements this time, you can skip an upgrade cycle and wait for the next one.
