I agree with Ryan, Holger. Thanks to your extensive explanation now I can understand your price policy quite well and I can share most of it, but _ONLY_ thanks to your extensive explanations. REBOL's site is a mess from this point of view. Misunderstandings are really easy and the ambiguity of message will scare off most corporate guys. I'd be scared off, if I had not known you quite well. For example, you explained us that the $79 license fee is intended for the soon-to-release /Core/Pro. Now I know it. But how can I guess it from your site? Again, "$99 per CPU, contact us" is a far different message from single license for commercial use $99, discounts on multiple licenses, contact us . IMHO the first is targeted ONLY to corporate realities, the second is smoother. Another one: how much it costs the /View/Pro commercial license? $99+49? These are all details, but it's the overall impression that is quite confusing. Consider it: I'm trying to promote REBOL actively and I will try NOT to show your site to potential users in order to better achieve my goal. Perhaps I'm excessive and I'm wrong, but this is the feedback I think I have to give you in good faith. Technically speaking, I consider REBOL a quantum leap. I DO WANT it to be a success. -- Paolo Russo [pa--russo--perd--com] _________________ PERD s.r.l. Virtual Technologies for Real Solutions
