So with all this talk about releasing the software for free or for a price, does that mean DFX5 actually has a release date?
After catching up a little more in the thread and thinking about it, I like your idea.
It's nice to test something and try it for free, without the software being completely unusable.
For people that use the software all the time, the $5 isn't too much.
But a lot of people may never try DFX if the $5 is required to start.
The splash screen approach makes sense. (and maybe some $'s)
I'm using DFX# no matter what, so whatever you want to go with, I'm for John.
Just like I don't mind paying a few bucks for an Android app, I don't mind paying a few bucks for the skin, for RR, and for the plugins. Free is always good, but if you use something every day, then you should be willing to pay at least something for it to show appreciation and support.
Zotac N630I-D-E M/B w/ Nvidia 7100, E5300 cpu, Xenarc 700IDT, M2-ATX, XP, RR & DFX 5.1.
I dont really understand the implications on the splash screen, but I´m glad that it will be free. I know that it´s up to you John, you are the owner after all, but I really can't afford to pay for it.
I know that the price isn't prohibitive, but to be truly honest, I download mp3's, movie's and lot of other stuff including SOFTWARES for free, it is wrong, but I do, and if I will start to pay for softwares, I probably should start for paying my pirated windows and other things that I am already using...

RR Skin RED 2.0 http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/rr-s...red-2-0-a.html
Well with all the discussion started about the pricing issue obviously the launch of the skin will delay now, since most likely John will have to remove certain plugins from the installer that were created by people that don't agree with John point of view.
This delay will be a shame for all us the mortal end users that are eager to get hold of a such awesome skin and that in any case agree to go with whatever John decides...
It's also a shame that some partnerships and friendships are being broke after all this discussion. Too bad that some people couldn't take it as light/normal discussion...
