Although maybe I'm not reading Monte's response quite right... :D

It does seem that it's $999 for no updates beyond minor point upgrades 
with the Gold package. How many months is that approximately, compared 
to the full year you're guaranteed to get with the Complete package?

I like that Linux is automatically available under all desktop licenses 
and hopefully a few more people will be encouraged to consider testing 
their work for compatibility under Linux. (Ok. I'm not holding my 
breath, but the most recent license structure surely discouraged it!)
