Affordable Software

I read an article today about software pricing. It mirrors my feelings about the cost of software exactly, and is the primary reason why I started using linux in the first place, and why I don’t buy any useful apps for my Nokia E51 Symbian based phone.

I hope Symbian developers (or Nokia) adopts this "price the software as cheap as you can, and make money off volume" strategy. It makes sense. I don’t see what will ever persuade me to buy a Mobile app for any thing above $5 USD.

Yes, I hate using pirated software. Thanks. Yes, I know what developing software involves, and I also know that it’s a develop once, duplicate a billion times thing.
