Linux is the Real Reason behind Apple's Snow Leopard Pricing

While it might seem irrational to say that Linux is driving Apple's pricing decision, I find it hard to believe that it is anything else. A price of $29 as reported by David Pogue in the New York Times looks like it is aimed directly at free Linux instead of the much more expensive Windows world.

I see the $29 upgrade for Snow Leopard as a shot across the bow of Windows users who might be thinking about switching to Linux.
