I read on a news web site about how 10.1 update is likely to cost around $20. I was under the impression that it would be free. After all, they are fixing things that should have been in 10.0. They released what I considered a crippled OS. Perhaps crippled isn't the right word... incomplete seems to fit better. In anycase, I would expect CD burning and DVD playback and writing support in an OS (which should have been in 10.0), and now that they have finally gotten around to releasing this functionality we are to pay again. Here is the story link .
