I'd be happy to pay $20 to be able to run Quicktime and other plugins on my Linux machine. $20 is very reasonable.

However, I like in Australia, and by the time you figure out the price difference between US$20 and the AUS, I'm looking at $40.00 for it, which is more than I have to pay for a new version of Linux.

Code Weavers look like they've got a good product, but $40 is a bit steep, especially since it leans heavily on Open Source software to do what it does. I won't be buying until the price gets more reasonable for users Down Under.

    Yes, the strong US Dollar is hurting other folks too, including our Canadian neighbors north of the border. It would be nice is CodeWeavers would consider a small price break for countries where the dollar exchange rate is high.
