    That's because Taxes in the USA (let's be more specific now) differ per State, while in Europe, they differ per country.
    But still, we have 21% VAT, Germany has 19% VAT, Poland has 23% VAT, but no matter where we are, we still need to pay Irish VAT, because **** Logic.

      what I got:
      >free because they can afford to
      >makes them look good
      >yeah macs look pretty cool but are they really


      It's cool, because I get to get the newest versions (more of because eventually 10.5 will get too old than "I GOt thE NEW THING GUYS) and if somebody complains about incompatibility I get to say "it's free dude!" idek though. I downloaded it anyways, because by the time I upgraded last time to 10.6 everything was already for 10.8 lol so I want that to not happen again.

      But from my point of view, it's simply just that somebody could make a decision and they exercised that power for some reason and they decided to make the new OS free. I have no idea, and nothing has been going too terribly wrong, so I guess it's a way to get back a hypothetical $30 that they got from the $2100 iMac. Yay rebates!

        I work in a school that uses Apple devices. And I am certain the reason why Mavericks is free is because they are also including their newest version of the iWork office suite (Pages, Keynote and Numbers) for free with Mavericks. This new version of iWork includes integration for iWork with iCloud which appears to integrate well with iOS 7 devices (which coincidentially the iOS versions of iWork are also free now!!)

        i.e. they want a chunk of what Google is doing with their free Google Docs/Drive online collaboration suite. Log into your iCloud account on the web at www.icloud.com and you will see what I mean.
