You don't think that Don's time is a cost?tux. wrote:A significant price increase is a reason to wonder about the dev's intentions, as I actually doubt that adding more features has a large cost to him anyway...iycgtptyarvg wrote:The prices will double in about a week, so be quick!
So...in order to add those "more features" (which does help justify a price increase, IMO), he had to spend numerous hours coding/testing them...even though he's working for himself, he still needs to be compensated for that effort...those added features didn't just appear by magic...many other app's have gone up in price as features were added over time so XY is just doing the same.tux. wrote:Somewhere I had read that the prices are increased due to more features, which would be a reason if he was a company, but AFAIK he isn't ...
No, but I don't know of too many people who like to work for nothing either...income helps pay the bills, right?tux. wrote:Could more money give him the spent time back?

Looks like XY is not for you. And this would not change by lowering the price. No problem. Of course more than 99% of all users won't gain anything by using XY. No problem. I would be very content by selling to the remaining 1%.tux. wrote:j_c_hallgren wrote:maybe you disagree?
As it is not a voluntary but a forced price addition, I do. I'd really like to spend money if I love a specific application (I even donated to the Vim developer), but rising prices lowers my will to do that... you see?
Ok...so this may be more about your possible lack of finances to pay the new higher prices rather than Don's rationale for doing so? If that's the case, then I fully understand...XY is only the 3rd app that I've actually bought/paid in all my years of using this sys...the other two are tax prep software (the free vers don't do state tax returns) and an OCR app that I needed for business...tux. wrote:I'd really like to spend money if I love a specific application (I even donated to the Vim developer), but rising prices lowers my will to do that... you see?

We're still not talking about what it can do for me. After all, it is just a file manager, not a specific industry software. (Or do you want it to be?)
