Can someone explain...
why Apple aren't forced to do this as well? I think the whole issue is slightly ludicrous and I'm a Mac user myself but in the interests of fairness surely all pay-for OS's should be included, not just Windows.

@20legend: It's better to let people think you're stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
I just don't get all the vitriol aimed at Apple by the microsoft masturbation brigade. So Apple screwed up with a product then did the right thing to apease their customers. I'm not aware of any other hardware or software manufacturers that have extended this level of courtesy, certainly not to the tune of 15%
By comparison, Microsoft admitted that Vista was a lame duck, despite that, we didn't see any level of compensation to their customers, not even a cheap upgrade to 7 despite the fact that they give their software away to the "right" people for free (or peanuts, I got Office 2008 Mac for £18 on the NHS scheme).
I'm not having a go at Microsoft, I use and buy both, but let's give credit where credit's due.
@Anon Coward: [For example, many ISPs (e.g. Virgin) do not allow use of their mail server from other domains.]
Erm... try putting your username and password in to the SMTP server settings and you should be absolutely fine. Amazing what happens when you look for an answer. Mine works perfectly with Virgin Media over 3G.
@Juillen 1: Ditto.
@Alan 6 and all the anonymous COWARDS,
Jesus H Christ...! It only takes the most tenuous, weakest hint of an iPhone and you lot start feverishly bobbing up and down on your chairs, struggling to get a full breath of air at the anticipation of being able to slag it off. You're like a paedophile in a primary school.
It's a phone. Get over it morons. No-one's expecting or forcing you to buy one.
The jealousy is quite clear.
