Yes, assuming multiple platforms means more than two eventually. (Given Carl Sassenrath's recent positive comments on BeOS, I think we can take that as read, however.) But, $499 a year to be allowed to distribute freeware encapped apps? That sounds like a way to prevent developers getting out of paying the $499 by saying "Our apps are free - what you're buying is our support". -- Carl Read
