View as plain text  
Gerald,

One hundred MySQL licenses still works out to $90.00 USD. Even if it worked out to half
that would still leave me with no margin and so no compensation for my time. I am trying
to find a way of using MySQL in a very low cost market and still have still have pocket
change after each sale. The current pricing scheme does not support this market and I am
hoping that MySQL is open to suggestions to allow it to support that market.

John
