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

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

road...again and again.
Adobe, Microsoft, Avid...too many to count.
In an evil way.
