The reason why I started this thread was to find out how many users use 
only the "core tools" and what they are.
The background to this was the enormous price increase for the whole Protel 
suite.
How many users would be interested in a "Standard Package" (No SIM, SI, 3D, 
Database Link, PLD, ???) for a lower price?.
I always was the opinion it's a good politic to have only on package with 
all the tool together, but now it's going to be a bit pricy for me.
Why should I pay for tools I never use?
