Apple to charge Tiger users for final Boot Camp release?

If we are to believe the "recent report MacScoop has obtained", Apple is getting greedy. It seems the company want more than just $1.99 for the software update that enables 802.11n wifi on its Intel Macs. Apple is supposedly planning to charge Mac OS X Tiger users for the final version of Boot Camp, expected to be released this Spring, along with Leopard. Final pricing was unclear, but speculation is around a $29 price tag.

Boot Camp, Apple's boot manager software that allows dual-booting of Windows and Mac OS X, will be one of the many features included in Leopard. So of course, many Tiger users will upgrade to Leopard anyways, and this shouldn't affect them. Nonetheless, what about those who aren't ready for Leopard?
