    Australia not everything revolves around America, at the current exchange rate will cost $308.097 AUD, and when it first came out it was $700 at a retail store how pathetic is that.

    There is doubt about that. And it will probably inconvenience users also

    I assume you are talking about how much it costs.

    No, I meant the drop of $400 AUD. People who purchased at $700 would be angry. This is the type of price gauging that encourages pirating.

    Well - always'll be hackers, even if they can afford it. It must be some odd consciousness that makes 'em feel happy when they've cracked an OS for others to get for free, even if they legit'ly purchased it
