Because Leopard already comes with Bootcamp. There's no need to purchase additional software. I've already told you that before.

He just bought the computer ace777. I'm pretty sure it would come with the latest version of Mac OS.

Default Re: Just got a Mac! (need some help)

I had an iBook for about 10 months and wasn't overly impressed. To not pay anything and still play all video files, there's a VLC for Mac as well. A lot of people pay for that stupid flip4mac thing to play wmv files when you can get something for free and play a lot of other types of files... Then there's Firefox. I didn't like Safari, so I used Firefox. The only thing I really like on Mac's that a PC can't do is Garageband. That's the best software made for Mac IMO. I just sold my iBook for $450 (what I paid for it 10 months before, lol) to help pay for my car though, I didn't have a big enough use for it...
