Mark H. Anbinder writes, "Many users will be disappointed to learn that the offer of a free 7.1 update to those who bought System 7 since the beginning of September applies only to those who bought a System 7 Upgrade Kit package. Users who purchased System 7 as part of a recent Macintosh purchase must pay separately for the update. It seems to us that, as long as Apple is claiming that we've been paying for the system software within the price of the Mac all along, they should not distinguish between system software purchase approaches in deciding who deserves the free update."
