Right. In the past, the thinking was that people wouldn't upgrade because it 
would require them to pay for it. That reason is now gone.

They may still complain if the newer versions of OS X no longer run on some 
older hardware. But isn't it true that all 64-bit capable Intel Mac can run 
the latest OS X? Or is there any hardware that would have upgraded to 10.8 but 
not further?
