FCX upromised pgrade to be free or not?

After all the fuzz with 1.0 one would suppose thay the promised upgrade be free, right?
I for one thing have not got any usage of the 1.0 purchase, especially since it won't install on any of our 2 Macpros (2008), so I have only played a little with it on my aging MBP.

One doesn't know for sure but my hunch is that there will be a bug fix update coming soon and that will probably be free. There may be a more involved upgrade down the line . . . but I personally can't help but think that one will be free as well. Note that the App Store has no paid updates. it's either free or a new full price purchase (unless Apple changes this policy) so I can't imagine Apple would charge $300 for another upgrade any time soon.

As ridiculous as this sounds, Apple should have made 1.0 a Beta version, with all the issues I am having.
And Im trying really hard not to bash it, but have been trying to work in X for a week, and currently average 80-100 crashes a day. Fortunately nothing lost but time.
This on a MPro, and a 2010 iMac 27".

The number of bugs I'm running into don't seem out of the ordinary for a 1.0 or major upgrade in some products including major OS upgrades. I'm not getting many crashes but those beach balls are painful.

If you travel down the road about what's a beta then you get into speculation about "hard" release dates and why they happen. I have my own speculation on that which I've posted elsewhere. I do think Apple for various reasons had a "hard" release date they eventually locked themselves into.

I've certainly been productive with it on MacPro 2008 with GPU upgraded to ATI 5770.

I think I am beginning to understand Apple's philosophy: BOGU.
