The other thing with buying a Macintosh is that you expect it to be a closed system. So paying for the ability to dual boot is not IMHO underhanded. It is on the price gouging side though.

As for your question, the response would be no. But MS did make it difficult to dual boot their own OS's. When you need a guide for a knowledgeable (not a techie but not a newbie either) user to even dual boot WinXP and Vista it's not exactly being helpful.

I'm not supporting Apple's price gouging, just saying other companies do it as well and have done so for years in the Windows world. I didn't say Microsoft btw as most probably are jumping to just such a conclusion.

The bottom line is to make money however you can in a legal fashion off of consumers. If a company can price gouge it's consumers, more power to them. It's a load of crud and I'm personally not going for it and will be wary of said company. After all, I'm an informed consumer and I will assume most reading DT are as well. However, I'll be lying to you if I said I didn't wish I had such customers. I help in a management level in my cousin's business and my father owns a couple of retail stores. We'd love some of Apple's customers. :)

I have not owned a Macintosh in well over 10 years. I do have an iPod and have no intention of getting an iPhone. No vested interest in Apple financially or fanboy wise.
