Welcome! I look forward to following the discussions about MyEclipse this week.

I have been a big fan of Eclipse for years, and used WSAD for a while but had only had the features of MyEclipse described by co-workers that had a license. I had a look at the link to the modules and the pricing and I was surprised at how reasonably it is priced Hopefully I'll get time to ask some questions about my own concerns/requirements so I can look at using it myself. Since there is an evaluation copy available I may try that one.

Enjoy your week!

Dave

David,
Thanks for the kind words. Our pricing model is a huge portion of our strategy. When we started out the goal was to not only make a tool we wanted to use, but set it at a price we would pay for it. We want everyone as customers.

Well it shows. It reminded me of the (old) Jira pricing structure (I think they changed it since I last looked) which was aimed at getting people to use their products. I spoke to one of their support guys once and their attitude was the same: they just wanted people to use the product. They had a quality product, they knew it was a quality product and they were more interested in a pricing structure that allowed people to use it rather than trying to extract every dollar from their users

Riyad Kalla,

I also wanted to comment on the nice pricing structure that you have!

As for Jira, I recently checked into buying that. I have used it before and it is my favorite bug tracker, but the cheapest option is $1,200.00. !!

Karen,

Thanks for the kind words about our pricing. We really enjoy providing tools under a model that is globally affordable, even for individuals. We never appreciated the way that other companies that would try to add on support and updates like a pricey order of fries ("you want support with that?") at purchase time. So, we include everything under a fixed price. I think it's really the most straightforward and comprehensive model out there. Oh, and we have a money-back guarantee too. Try that with someone else. ;-)
