Yeah, I should have put something like; ... "the 40ukp would be better used as a part payment towards the cost of" ..... I was actually a little annoyed to see that I was expected to pay a further 40ukp to use a program that I've already payed a lot for on a second computer. I'm sure Microsoft do the same but that doesn't make it right. Even worse from the "user paying through the nose" point of view is the Microsoft dream that we never own any software but pay a monthly rental to use it. (Don't get me started...)
