UK prices must be different because in the US a 5-license family pack of OS X is about double the price of an OEM copy of XP Home. I paid around $100USD for XP Home when it came out and I haven't paid anything since then. I only bought it because I wanted it right when it came out and I would have had to wait a couple months before my university's bookstore started selling the $5 student version. Apple's cost for a student version of OS X is $70.

I do like the idea of Apple's family pack though, but it doesn't help me at all being a single user.
