upgrade disks have been $29 for some time now. Apple just never advertised that an upgrade disk could be used for a clean install so tons of idiots paid the full price for the same thing. I have used my Snow Leo UPGRADE disk to do clean installs on blank HDD's many many times. Apple fooled a lot of people on this one.

Still waiting for pricing on a family pack...but have great doubts seeing it's from the app store. Also - has anybody addressed the need for a disk for a disk repair?

There is no family pack, you can just pay the $29.99 and download it to all your machines that are tied to the same Apple ID.

and you can use multiple accounts on the MacAppStore

Not to be rude, but you got your facts wrong. At $29.99 Lion is 99¢ more expensive than Snow Leopard. I know, an insignificant difference, but I though that MACLIFE of all people should be aware. :P

i love Mac OS X Lion great for screening websites! the only problem is until most of the developers update there apps to full-screen it will feel like a half-upgrade. (BTW my 2 apps have it built in and have been updated for Lion)

Many OSes have been available officially for download, Ubuntu anyone? And Lion is only tied for cheapest OS with Snow Leopard, that is if free doesn't count, Ubuntu anyone?

no i prefer a working OS that has developers developing apps for it, so no i won't!

also did you not read the part that said (many first "FOR APPLE"?)
not for any OS's think about it you download iOS!
