I don't agree. Considering Frame's capabilities and its excellent phone
support, I think it's a great deal. Especially for the PC: $400 -- what
more do you want? If you really think it's overpriced, why don't you
vote with your feet and buy from someone who prices their software more
to your liking. Ventura, maybe? MS Word? Interleaf?

Oh, I see: You don't feel THAT strongly about it. . .

These people put out a great product, and they support it. And from
what I hear, they're not getting rich doing it. I think they deserve
our support -- and more than some $50 upgrade-trick dodge, too.
