[tony west] "[Chris Harlan] "Free is relative. To get iMovie, you had to buy a Mac."

I know, and people WERE starting to buy macs. The start of what you see today.

They weren't buying it to get Imovie.

They already were getting a Mac and "oh. look at here......a free cutting tool tossed in"

A hardware company like Apple can afford to give away software for free or very cheap.

When the guy in the video talked about the Avid student price being 300 bucks. They didn't pull that price out of a hat. They don't want to give their crap away for that price any more than I'm a man in the moon.

You know, Tony, I'm not really following your logic, so I'm not quite sure how to respond. I'm not sure what you mean by "what's happening today." Mac Sales? I get that iMovie was a give away, and that people started playing with it. People have been interested in playing with video for a long time. Avid student price has been where it is for a long time--years before FCP X pricing, if that's what your point is.
