I purchased 2.0 in May 2007 at $500. The same product now
sells for $250. Ted has a pricing structure on his Blog (
that I cannot find within Adobe sales. I have spent 3 hours on the
phone trying to find someone who can upgrade me for the pricing
that is on Ted's blog. I know that he is not in charge of pricing,

Christophe briefly at Sybase in my past life (he certified me for
teaching Java 1.1) and we always had to deal with the different
camps not communicating, or features getting cut after they were

You folks are great, keep up the great job in supporting the
Since we have not officially shipped Flex 3, final pricing
has not been published yet. However, we have stated publically that
upgrade pricing will be available at a price of $99 for Standard
and $299 for Professional. We're in the final stretch towards
release, so keep watching!
What is the current status of the education free-licenese
that were talked about late last year? I have already purchased 2.0
with Charting and now that I am enrolled in college what do I need
to do to upgrade?
