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!

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. [ July 31, 2007: Message edited by: Riyad Kalla ]

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
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. ;-)
