Version 3.0 Distribution

I would like to see you distribute the software like you do with CityDesk -- that is have a starter edition which can be downloaded and installed.  Due to the proprietary nature of the stuff we do -- evaluating using your current scheme isn't feasible. 

We currently have a bug tracking software which is half brain dead.  By installing a crippled version (50 bugs total?) would facilitate your "viral bug tracking" sales method. :-)

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your viewpoint) since our product is ASP based, we distribute the source code when you install the product.  Hence, we can't create a crippled version that wouldn't be easily un-crippled.

We do however offer a money back guarantee for 90 days no questions asked.  So if you've tried out the demo server and you like it, then just purchase a five user license and install it.  Then if it doesn't suit your needs you can always return it.

An easily un-crippled copy would be ok with me! :-)

It is tough to get a PO for a product before I have anyone convinced we should switch to it.  :-(

Thanks for responding.

That's why the five user license is $199!  We figured people could put it on their credit cards and then get reimbursed (or if it doesn't work, return it).

Did exactly that - I can even cope if I don't get re-imbursed for the grief it will save me in the long term...
