That means at a minimum Altium doubled the price of the DXP upgrade from
their last major upgrade (Protel98/99 to 99SE), which cost me $995US. I
believe I could have possibly had the upgrade for $495US if I had acted
sooner, but I wasn't interested at the time.

I think the question is -- is there anything NEW in DXP that's really
worth $2000? I mean if you find some new features that increase your
productivity and make it a good investment for you then by all means,
buy it. But for me, I've seen or heard of nothing meaningful (to me)
that DXP can do that Protel99SE can't.
