Hello, all:

One of my customers just told me he received an offer from Protel (Altium,
whatever) to buy Protel for $2K.  That's right, $2K for a full (not upgrade)
license.  I recommended Protel to him because I like it and because we have
done custom design work for him, and he needs a way to modify and print the
files for his documentation needs, and design some of his less complex
boards in-house.  I told him to download the trial version from Protel's
website, which he did about 2 months ago.  So has anyone else seen or heard
of this offer for $2K?  I wonder if it only applies to new customers who
have downloaded the trial version?  If this offer is only valid for new
customers, what a punishment to us old-timers!

Best regards,
Ivan Baggett
