Start8 Now Cost $5

Question

zeroomegazx    7

Recieved an email today about Start8 version 0.95 with a link to download. Followed the link and they want 5 bones for the new BETA version, with final version free if you pay now. This is kind of an outrage but I guess I should have seen it coming. Can anyone recommend a good alternative?

EDIT:

Upon checking Neowin's old interviews I ran across this. I thought I had remembered the CEO stating this:

Will anyone still be able to download and/or purchase the final version of Start8 when it is officially launched?

Oh yea. Start8 is going to be freeware still for non-commercial use.

I haven't read all of this thread, but have you looked at:

8StartButton - https://www.totalidea.com/8startbutton/index.php

They have a free version, but $10 to unlock everything. I personally use the free version and it is pretty good.

Thank you! I can imagine the number of people griping about paying $5 for this, then tomorrow walking into Starbucks and plunking down $4.85 for a hot brown beverage with some fancy toppings. A beverage! That will be drunk and disposed of in a matter of 20 minutes.

Not me. I get coffee free at work. For me this is not a value softare. for others it may. I have spend money on software that i find good value.
