Weigh it out, pricing

I really don't understand the pricing. I'm not a marking guru, but here is how I would play it...

Sell 1.x for $30 bucks. Seriously, they need the publicity, I would pay $30 to check it out. And sell it on Ebay.

Sell 2.0 for $60 bucks. Each upgrade downloadable for $30 bucks.

Sell 2.5 for $60, upgrade $30. etc...etc.. until they have enough users to charge $90 for a major release.

They really need people to at least install it on their computer. Who wouldn't pay $30 to check it out?

You need a userbase before you are successful. Getting people using it is the goal.
