Apple now selling $20 vouchers for OS X Lion and Mountain Lion online

While the major news may be around the release of OS X Mavericks, Apple also has a fix for those users who don’t necessarily want the latest OS version or need a previous one due to compatibility issues, especially on older machines.

Apple traditionally only sells the latest version of OS X on their website with users having to rely on phone orders if they required some older version, but now the company is finally giving its customers an easier way.

The company has started selling voucher codes for OS X Lion and Mountain Lion at $20 a pop. These can be redeemed on the Mac AppStore where users can download and install the OS.

While Mavericks is a free update and it only requires users to have Snow Leopard, not everyone wants to jump on-board because of lack of support for older machines as well as possible bugs still showing up after the launch so this comes as welcome news to those users.

Windows CE.

Yeah I was going to say, all the walmart's I have seen are running Windows CE on all their handheld scanners, and it's a unified system so ALL the walmarts are using the same devices

10.4 supported Intel as well, but the only way to get it was to buy one of the new Intel Macs.

That way around, yea of course.

Yea, here's the crazy part. This woman had 10.0, she was asking me for 10.4, of course you could only get that through Amazon, but what the hell..10.4?!

I honestly wish I knew what Macs were really like back in the early 2000s, I've never had a Mac til exactly a year ago, though I've wanted to get a Mac for years.

The first time I've ever used a Mac of course was the big colorful tubes and I never recognized Apple as to me being a fanboy at the time. It's the environment now that I love.

What am I saying? I was in Middle School. LOL
