Hmm, but Avid are being clever though.  Let Joe public have a cut down
version - they won't buy at full price so nothing is lost.  Get the
students who will want all the "bells and whistles" used to the full
version, and in 3 years time sting them for £££.

Yes. That's the entire business model: give students at college free Microsoft Office, get them hooked, and "used to it" - then they're a customer for life when they buy the full version down the road...again and again.

Adobe, Microsoft, Avid...too many to count.

Clever indeed.

In an evil way.
