If Paint.net wasn't free how much do you think it would cost?

My guess = $39.99 *plus tax

Depends... What company would it have been sold by?

If Adobe, it would have been PhotoLite, included in CS3, and only 150$

If it were Rick himself, as an indie, i'd say 10-15$

Any other company... 50-100$

Then you'd get it in self downloading and installing parts, with hardly any plugin support, you'd have to restart your PC every time, and it would have to update every 20 minutes. You do get free bugs though. The Lite Pack comes as a demo on windows but you can purchase it for 50$.

25€.

edit: with taxes.

I'd agree with those, with Bob's being the uttermost price.

According to Google 25€ = ~GBP£17.37 = ~USD$36.16.

I'm sure you meant Paint.NET. :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I think Rick would have a sudden stroke of pure genius and devise the first truly BitTorrent-proof copy protection scheme.

No way. I know a friend who has got MS Office 2003 via torrenting. So if Microsoft can't do it, Rick can't either. After all, Microsoft is the computer giant.

I'd be more interested in trying the Radiohead and NIN/Niggytardust method. They say "pay whatever you want for it, including $0.00". For NIN/Niggytardust album, they give you 192kbit mp3's for free, or for $5+ you can get either 320kbit or lossless mp3's. No DRM. For those who pay $0, it's basically cheap marketing and advertising. Ubiquity has value too.
