Okay gentlemen, lets close this thread before it gets out of hand.

As with everything, everyone has their opinion on a multitude of subjects.  There is a way to express your opinion politely, and inflammatory.

Contrary to what Karl Marx asserted the price of goods or services is not objective.

Overall I've been happy with the money I've spent with HRD.  I don't have a single suite of programs  that hasn't suffered growing pains.  I use Adobe's Creative suite for work and, while it is amazing software, there has been some rather painful bumps in the road from Photoshop 1.0, Illustrator 1.0 and After Effects 1.0.  That is just the nature of software I am afraid.

By comparison, the HRD suite has been pretty bump-free up until now. So I will cut them some slack.  ...and I do not feel entitled to free software.

For HRD to be considered a "rip-off," I'd have to say that some kind of fraud was involved.  Otherwise, if the price is too high for you, then that's what the free market is for and Marx be damned.

Another country heard from,
