QuoteUnfortunately, I simply can't seem to profit enough from Process Lasso home sales, so I plan to focus more on the Enterprise. That will take considerable development time though. In the interim, I must continue to feed my family, therefore I must keep getting more aggressive with pestering users to purchase the Pro version.
QuoteUnfortunately, the customer to user ratio is 1:1000, or greater. Yes, that high! To be clear, that means that for each 1,000 long-time users of Process Lasso, there is only one person who purchases it.

QuoteIf it has negative changes fewer people will try the free version, therefore fewer people will pay for the pro version, it's as simple as that
QuoteYou may feel your $20 entitles you to take an elitist attitude, but they guy is just trying to sell as many as possible, whilst allowing as many as possible to take advantage from it in some way.
