Who is grabbing the $79 2.0 Pro deal?
Just curious how many of you folks have suddenly purchased CD 1.0 at the $79 price point knowing that you will get the $349 version as soon as CD 2.0 goes gold.
I am fairly new to CityDesk. I initially get the free version to see if it would be suitable for my needs. I liked the free version so much that within a few days I decided to buy the Home edition. At the time of purchase I was not in any way aware that a free upgrade to the Pro version was on the table and was delighted to learn of "that" aspect some days after I had made my purchase. My CMS experience is working with Lotus Domino and GlobalSCAPE’s PureCMS both of which are *very* expensive. CityDesk, although not as powerful or as capable as the two I mentioned provides a very substantial value proposition in relation to its current price point regardless of the special offer -- from my perspective.
Yech... Lotus Notes Domino. Yech. I worked with it... though the way we used it was completely wrong.
Have fooled with Home version and am tracking developments.
Russ... you own the pro version. Take Joel up on the offer before it goes away.
I'll admit the free 'pro' upgrade was what ultimately swayed me. I was seriously considering the Home version, but still unsure as to whether I'd jump or not, when it was announced.
I am still considering - I downloaded the free version some time ago, but have done very little with it, and was thinking that if I did reach the free-limits then I would upgrade to the home edition.
Yesterday, I did. Since CityDesk came out I've been thinking about getting it. It was the Home edition's 500 files limit und the price of the Pro version that scared me. The new deal took care of that.
I bought it. Also, there's a $20 discount if you order within 72 hours of downloading the trial version.
I grabbed the deal - I've known about City Desk since I started reading the Joel on Software site and forum ages ago.
It convinced me, too. I'd been playing with the trial off and on for a while, so when I saw the upgrade deal, combined with the excellent guarantee, I couldn't come up with any reason to pass it up.
I jumped on it. I had just been using the trial version and I'd ultimately have to migrate my site to something else. Originally I was unwilling to pay 80 bucks to use CD for my personal web site. The special offer changed my mind. I'm not using a lot of the capabilities, but I'm a fan of Joel, so I don't mind shelling out a bit of cash to keep my personal site on CD. I'm afraid I'll be priced out of CD for version 3 though. I just can't see spending 300+ for CD in order to maintain a personal site (80 bucks was too much really). So CD 2.0 pro it is for a while = )
Is this deal still available? If so, how do I go about signing up?
As I understand it you simply download and register the free demo edition. Then you'll get a welcome email offering a $20 discount coupon code. Then you go back to Fog Creek and buy the Home edition within 72 hours, using your coupon code.
