First there's the news that Apple is going to charge $1.99 for a WiFi update and now MacScoop claims Apple will charge Mac OS X Tiger users $29 for Boot Camp.

Free beta versions of Boot Camp were released last year but it looks like the final version of this piece of software that's used to run Windows and Mac OS X in dual-boot mode won't be available for free.
Apple is also expected to officially support Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system with the final version of Boot Camp.

When Apple announced Boot Camp in April 2006, the company did not clarify if Boot Camp would remain free for Tiger users in its final version.
