How long until Brent and Nick move on you think? It makes no business sense to keep 2 of the premier developers out there working on free products. The products will do great (for a while) without them being free.

Anyone out there who creates software for a living should be pretty unnerved by this. Your livelihood just took another little hit.

Is there any chance they made them free because they weren't doing well financially? I suppose it's possible that sales were not up to snuff, though it seems unlikely.
