It is $20, and your program expires after 3 month. That's overpriced.

I (and others) obviously disagree. Overpriced is a subjective term. Without knowing how many they've sold and how much revenue they'd hoped to make one cannot really discuss the validity of the pricing strategy.

Just because it's more than you (and others) are willing to pay doesn't mean it's overpriced.

You haven't looked at the beta sign up page then? It says it is $20 to enter the beta program, but the tools will expire every 3 months - which means you are at the mercy of the company creating the tools. It also states that the final release will have a further cost and the offer they give is "$20 off the final price" which is totally unacceptable. We, the potential beta testers, help them develop their platform and get precisely zero concessions on the final product? Um...?

Cappuccino, on the other hand, is free and looks really nice. I'm certainly thinking of playing with it some more.
