Aside, many Apple bashers complain that Apple 'tax' users US$129 every year, which has been demonstrated a complete false. The most recent Mac OS X upgrade costs only US$29. Of course, some Microsoft devotees would even state that Mac OS X upgrade should only be something called 'Service Packs', whereas the upgrade to newer version of Windows is needed.
