    I would have to say that those 14,000 developers participated in the beta because they didn’t realise the pricing policy Adobe was going to use.

    USA = $7500 UK (after GBP -> USD conversion) $9000

    Well done guys. You really REALLY know how to screw your developer base and make it impossible to sell Coldfusion to new clients.

    Thankfully somebody has produced a open source CFML engine http://www.smithproject.org/ but boy oh boy does Adobe need to look at where they want to take Coldfusion (and other products in Europe/Any other country other than the US) because your pricing policy absolutely stinks and is making it extremely hard to justify Adobe CF.

    Peter: Have to disagree with you on pricing. You are partially correct: Enterprise Edition is available for $7499 per 2-CPUs, and Standard Edition is available for $1299 per 2-CPUs. ColdFusion may also be used for development at no cost with the free Developer Edition, a full-featured server for development use only. Special upgrade pricing is available to owners of valid ColdFusion MX 6 and 7 licenses.
