Our discounts are limited to volume purchases, educational use discounts, and free licenses for non-commercial open source developers. Please be assured that we have given careful thought to our pricing structure, which reflects the cost of supporting each platform, and the fact that we exist in what is really still a very tiny niche market. Also, please keep in mind that licenses are already quite cheap when compared to just about any metric of cost in commercial software development (programmer salaries, total project costs, etc). Typically, Wing will pay for itself in a matter of days or weeks. Interestingly, we've had quite a few users urge us to raise the price to better reflect what the product can do. We have no plans to do this, however, in part because we're sensitive to the issue of foreign exchange rates, which come into play in about 50% of our sales. > And now I just realized, if you agree on the multi-os license idea, it > would be nice to have an upgrade path for us existing customers. We will offer an upgrade path to 2.x and any higher-end products we may produce. If we do alter our price structure, we will always try to build in reasonable upgrade paths for our existing customers. Thanks, anyway, for bringing this up! - Stephan
