No offense and I'm not inflamed.
I just wanted to let you know why the pricing is what it is.
Situations are different for each. I on the other hand think the
pricing is very good compared to the number of hours it takes to
create these programs and the net return. It is a passion, not a get
rich or retire early scheme. Volume speaks hear, sell more then you
can lower the price.
Boisy and I spent a WHOLE summer of our time debugging and testing
SuperDriver and the SuperIDE interface. We had some heated
conversations but in the end it was all worth it.
