Confirmed: $29 Snow Leopard disc updates ALL Intel Macs
Well, Walt Mossbaum
has confirmed it ... the $29 Snow Leopard upgrade disc will load on any Intel Mac, even those running Tiger.
It was obviously merely an helpful suggestion from Apple that Tiger users
should purchase the box set - which includes the upgrade, iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, a corkscrew, a magnifying glass, novelty underwear and Keynote - so hopefully we'll see broader adoption of the upgrade across the entire Intel product range.
Seriously, Mossbaum's article doesn't make it clear whether the licensing of the box set differs from that of the upgrade, so I wouldn't advocate that Tiger users treat this news as gospel. Hopefully, Apple will make the policy clear in the days and weeks to come.
