    I'm 65 years old and I guess that I get a little paranoid when I see " history repeat itself " How they handled Appleworks v.s. Pages is very similar to what SEEMS to be going on with Imovie HD and Final Cut Pro / Express, that is, forcing us to move over to a paid for application instead of a free one by "dumbing down the free one. "

    I suppose there is nothing wrong with that business model except that it's getting very close to what microsoft has done for years. Frankly Steve ....I liked it better when microsoft copied us instead of us copying them, that's all. This is starting to look like " a race to the bottom " and I don't think that is where Apple belongs.

    Does anyone else have a problem with Garageband crashing immediately on startup?

    mine is fine, but iDvd will NOT start. It flashes its logo screen then dies a quick death.

    console gives me:

    2007-08-21 09:04:27.838 iDVD[297] Can't open input server /Library/InputManagers/Smart Crash Reports.bundle

    An exception of type NSInvalidArgumentException occured.

    *** -[NSCFSet addObject:]: attempt to insert nil

    Stack trace:

    sh: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `('

    sh: -c: line 1: `/usr/bin/atos -p 297 (null) | tail -n +3 | head -n +-4 | c++filt | cat -n'

    ##**## Not encoding -> exit(5)

    Much weirdness.

    After a shut down and reboot, Garageband is starting up nicely.

    Problem gone!
