It's even better than that. The ATS price for P98, until the end of 
December, is $1595.

Protel sales practices a strange kind of math. Sure, recent purchasers pay 
$8K and get ATS. but July - September purchasers also paid $8K. The price, 
as I recall, was $6K until July 1.

Now, here is what is really strange. Right now, if I had a P98 license, I 
could get ATS, which includes P99SE plus Phoenix, for $1595. But because I 
paid to upgrade 98 to 99SE way back, I will have to pay $1995?

As I said, a very good deal for 98 licensees. I'm just concerned about the 
99SE users, the core constituency.

I'd think about $1500 tops, $995 would be better. Less would pretty clearly 
be too little.... As to renewal ATS in a year, I'm not going to worry too 
much about it now.
