    The major upgrade will be the one coming this fall. Besides that I am not opposed to paying 10.00 for a software upgrade. It is not much different than upgrading to Snow leopard for 29.00. With the cool new stuff in the fall upgrade I would have gladly paid for that one too.

    I also have no problem paying a reasonable fee for major upgrades. Heck, i'd pay $10 for 4.0.....

    This assuming all maintenance upgrades remain free. I have no problem paying for things I want and use.

    I am fine with the upgrade fee so long as the improvements are commensurate with the amount.

    Personally I'm really surprised the first update is free. I had to pay for the first major update for my iPod Touch.

    I am not opposed to dropping $10 for further upgrades beyond OS 4.0

    We are iPad owners...that ten bucks represents a couple less apps a month and I'm covered. To think free upgrades were part or should be part of the deal seems a bit polyana.

    Even software upgrades for desktops incur fees at some point.

    The iPad is a sexy beast! Beauty has never in this life been cheap.
