Speaking of pricing. The US price stays the same (US$129 single license and US$199 for family pack). Apple Pty Ltd (Australia) has adjusted the price to reflect the strong Aussie dollar.

For Mac OS X Tiger, the price was AU$ 199 for single user license
now, Mac OS X Leopard, the price is AU$ 158 (single user license) AU$249 (family pack)

I ordered by copy of Mac OS X v.10.5 Leopard today from Academy Store (Apple Premium Reseller). I will pick it up 6pm this Friday, and hope that I can get some freebies.
