Commercial shows Apple fans camped out for the iPhone 4S, marveling at the Samsung Galaxy S II

The past year's events have made it pretty clear that Apple and Samsung aren't the best of friends. Apple initially accused Samsung of copying Apple's iPhone and iPad designs when developing the Galaxy line, and a long list of lawsuits have been launched back and forth ever since around the globe.

Apple may have successfully killed Samsung's sales in some countries outside the U.S., but Samsung isn't going to take this lying down. In its latest commercial for the Galaxy S ll, Samsung makes fun of Apple fanboys by portraying a scene where they're all waiting in line hours in advance for the next release. While waiting, the fanboys are noticing passerby with phones that are "magnificent," and of course the phones in question are Galaxy S ll's.

The fanboys make pompous comments while waiting in line, such as "If it looks the same, how will people know I upgraded?" and an exchange between two fanboys that goes as follows:

Fanboy 1: I could never get a Samsung, I'm creative.

Fanboy 2: Dude you're a barista.

Check it out for youselves:

Every time Apple comes out with a new version of OSX they charge around $30 for it and call it a new cat name when under the hood it is just the same OS with a few new updates and security fixes.

When Microsoft releases a new version of the same OS they call it a Service Pack or SP. They too include new updates and security fixes, but they don't charge a single penny for it.

Does that answer your question?

Point releases are similar, OS 10.7.1, 10.7.2, 10.7.3, etc. Security updates and bug fixes, totally free.

I've been through every upgrade of Windows since 2.0 and OS X since 10.2 (20+ years compared to 9), and OS X updates are similarly significant. In the case of 10.4 it was a more substantial upgrade than even the move from XP to Vista in terms of under the hood changes and features added. 10.5 and 10.7 are as big as any major Windows version I've seen.

So no, your assumptions regarding service packs and OS X updates are completely incorrect.
