Silliness over Boot Camp Speculation

A report on MacScoop says that Apple will charge Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4) users $29 for Boot Camp when the final version is released alongside Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5):
Apple will charge current users of Mac OS X Tiger for the final version of Boot Camp that will be released at the same time as Mac OS X Leopard, this Spring.

Though the source wasn't sure about the final pricing, the report said there is strong possibility that Apple's boot manager software, allowing to use Windows and Mac OS X in dual boot mode will be sold for $29 to Tiger users.
To this I say, good. After all, $29 isn't a bad price, and instead of complaining about the charge, we should just be happy that Apple is supporting Boot Camp at all on the previous OS X version. (You know, assuming that this rumor is true.) It would be more typical for Apple to require Tiger users to upgrade to get the new functionality.
