Free 10.6 upgrade for 10.5 MobileMe users

With the demise of MobileMe around the corner, reports are circulating around the internet that Apple has begun emailing MobileMe users to offer a free upgrade to 10.6 Snow Leopard for people who are currently running 10.5 Leopard on their computers.
The offer is being made to provide 10.5 users a cheaper upgrade path to 10.7 Lion so that they can upgrade to iCloud and not miss out when MobileMe is finally discontinued.
Lion is available from the App store for only £20.99 but this requires at least 10.6.6 on your Mac to be able to access the App store.
