From the Embarcadero’s On-Line Shop:…
The Upgrade product is available to registered owners of 2006-2009 versions of CodeGear RAD Studio, Borland Developer Studio, Delphi, Delphi Prism or C++Builder Enterprise or Architect products. For a limited time only, through Dec 31, 2009, registered users of all classic versions 1 through 2005 also qualify for upgrade pricing.
The interesting part is… “For a limited time only, through Dec 31, 2009, registered users of all classic versions 1 through 2005 also qualify for upgrade pricing.”
…considering that the prices for upgrade is approximatively a half from the prices for a new user, is seems a pretty nice offering, no? …and it works, believe me. There were guys in non-technical which already used it.
But, well, about the Embarcadero’s financial strategy perhaps we’ll do another post. Till then you can flame in comments here and in .public.non-technical 🙂
UPDATE: The above link takes you to RAD Studio prices page. But if you’ll go to Delphi prices page you’ll see that the offer is available also for it.
