I am always curious at to why this would be the case. Were these buyers who bought the software back in 1998 without a support contract? Other than that, why wouldn't someone do it when they can do it for free?

The argument "It works, why mess with it?" I have heard in the past I think is just lame. The first time someone hits a problem without support (assuming they have a support contract), someone will lose a job, which is just wrong. Received on Fri Nov 28 2008 - 07:51:32 CST
