Okay, I can't believe this thread went on this long without clarifying this point!!!! You get Mac OS UPDATES for free whenever you run Software Update. You can download them and update your OS 10.2 system to 10.2.6, and get the latest version of iTunes for free. What you guys are talking about, however, is an OS UPGRADE! The difference between 10.2 and 10.3 is nothing like the difference between XP Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2! It's more like the difference between 2000 Pro and XP Pro. You have to pay because it's a signifigant upgrade, with not only bugfixes, but new features (fax through print dialog, file vault, exposť, new finder, fast user switching, PDF options, Xcode, open Word docs in TextEdit, etc.). Going from 10.2.5 to 10.2.6 doesn't introduce new features, only bug fixes to the existing feature set.
