Four Mac OS X upgrades in three years... too much?

Four Mac OS X upgrades in three years... too much?
October 24, 2003 - 11:32 EDT Roger Kay, analyst at research firm IDC, said the release of Mac OS X 10.3 Panther raises a question as to whether Apple is asking too much of its small customer base to buy four upgrades in three years. "There may not be that many people who take every upgrade," Kay said. "Not everybody is going to want to take something like Jaguar and turn it into Panther. Jaguar is pretty good. Just a few months ago, they were saying it's the best thing in the world." But Ken Bereskin, director of Mac OS X product marketing at Apple, said he thinks the new features of Panther are worth it. "We're just convinced there's never been more value in these software upgrades," said Bereskin. "For a small amount of money, it's like having a new Mac all over again."

My Comments: I do think they need to start charging a bit less, but I do like the large upgrades in a small amount of time. The problem with panther that I see, is that there are only a couple of the new items that I would actually use.. the rest.. I wouldnt.

i think jaguar was a bit over priced. but panther is like the difference between os 8 and os 8.6.. they really could have called it OS 10.5 with all the changes theyve made and new technologies theyve added

The new OS X will be Cougar!

Speaking of Cougars, I was driving mine and another kid in a red cougar was behind me, we raced, I won, got up to about 105mph
