Digitool dropped the price of MCL from $345 to $95. If you're a student, you can get it for $66. Wow.
They also dropped the concept of subscriptions, though existing subscriptions will be honored. Tech support is now fee-based; either $25 per incident or $200 per year (educational discounts available).
Of course, it's still version 4.3.1, and it only runs in the Classic environment under OS X.
Mike's idea of buying a copy now to support work on the OS X version is awfully appealing. (He actually bought a subscription, which is no longer an option.)
To tell the truth, it's somewhat reassuring to hear anything at all from the Digitool corporate entity. I have to at least wonder whether this is the start of a bold new marketing initiative, or something more desperate.Posted by jjwiseman at April 11, 2002 04:01 PM
