Not me. Windope 95 was 50 quid. Windope ex-peeh 200 quid.
Its gone up. And you get less. With more and more fragmentation
of what should be single product like "windope this edition without
that" priced at 50 quid, and "windopes that edition without this"
priced at 200 quid. You guessed it, the 200 quid edition is the
minimum you need. Windopes prices have gone through the roof!!
Its right that everyone should seek out free software,
particularly as you get more on simple liveCDs
like open office, music software, CAD software etc depending
on which liveCD or distro you choose.
