That's at least the stuff that I like, and doesn't mind paying a little for.
Think about it, pizza for the family will cost you just as much, and doesn't last very long :-)
Yep, for me I like the upgrade as I was going to buy padshop anyway.
But there's loads of people that already own things like omnisphere, various NI packs etc who have no interest in the new stuff included in 6.5 and why should such people be forced to pay for them (which in reality they are, as things like the lanes working as they used to, wont be included in the free update next week).
Also not everyone has loads of disposable income. Some people have pizza delivered every week, others have it every few months still others don't have it delivered at all as they don't earn that much and simply don't have that sort of money to throw around. Such people could well have skipped an upgrade, finally upgraded to 6.0 in the understanding that they will have free updates throughout that versions life cycle.
