What I wonder about is why Runtime Revolution don't
consider making earlier versions (such as 2.6)
available at a reduced price for those who don't
necessarily want or need all the latest bells and
whistles, and, for that matter, are not prepared to
cope with all the bugs in the current version.

For the sake of argument, I work with DreamCard 2.6.1
- for me it works the eponymous DREAM - now I would be
perfectly prepared to stump up an extra $25 to upgrade
it to the full-blown Runtime Revolution 2.6.1. But (at
least just now) I have neither the money nor the
inclination to pay a fairly large lump for

I often use Bryce 2 on my computer, and Poser 3 - both
were released FREE a few years ago. Now to rerelease
RR 2.1 or somesuch free is probably asking a bit much
(after all it would eat into RR's revenue stream, a
tiny bit), but were it offered at a reduced price it
might find quite a few takers.
