Thanks Adrian, looks like I will have to cash in a few more Pension cheques before upgrading, I better tune up the pace maker again, got all excited before the big downer.
Funny, I feel like that. I understand Vectric cant just give software away and sure people will always complain, but is it $US175 of upgrade?
When compared to other free software seems crazy to me..
Can't please all the people all the time. Amongst commercial software providers I've never come across one with such a generous upgrade policy. There has been many a time with other software I've used that I've bought a week before a new version has come out and the policy is "tough, you want it, pay for it". Whereas with Vectric I would have a year.
As for whether the upgrade is worth the cost that is down to the individual. The majority of the new features are of no interest to me but the ones that are have saved me hours per week (I'm a beta tester) so the cost would have been recovered in a few days. For some people there might not be $175 of value in there for others it might be worth ten times that to them.
Comparison to "free" software are always risky. Do they have the level of support that Vectric does, do they offer tutorials and documentation to the level that Vectric does?
