Logic Air= GarageBand

As an inducement to download OS10.9 Apple is also giving away the iLife and iWork suites.

And very LPX-like version of GarageBand http://www.apple.com/mac/garageband/

Kinda sorta. The apps are free as updates, or if you buy a new Mac or iOS device. So if you didn't own the apps last week, you won't necessarily get them for free if you update to Mavericks today. (There may be "up to date" wiggle room on a recently purchased Mac, not sure.)

I do like the trickle-down effect. I was just reading that the new iMovie can use FCPX effects plug-ins made in Motion. That's pretty awesome for iMovie. And the bottom line for all of this: Yet another great reason to buy a Mac.

Well, every Mac user that can run Mavericks at least received iLife with the Mac and therefore gets a free update. GarageBand is actually not a free update, but a new - free for everybody - product. The $4.99 in-app purchase only gives you access to a lot of content that didn't exist in older GB versions to begin with.

Ah true! I was thinking of iWorks, specifically.
