I purchased Xara Extreme last year. The cost made it seem like a good deal, it seemed like a nice package, and I was looking for something that was a bit more friendly than Photoshop, which I was using at the time.
Now, a year or so later, they are back with an update that cost around as much as I paid for the software originally. Not that it matters, but I think that for whatever reason, I was under the impression at the time that updates were free.
At any rate, I was wondering if people planned to shell out $40-$50 for the upgrade. It seems excessive to me, particularly after the small amount of time, but I wanted to see what others thought.
