Kind of funny because it doesn't mention Intel processors (I only assume because all Mactel machines already have the newest OS X).

Ummm so having to pay more money every 6 months for a point upgrade that ads minor features is a plus.

You could consider SP 1 and 2 to be point releases that microsoft gave away for free.
