From where I'm standing, I think that losing the so called home edition has created a hole in the CityDesk range. I ha ve suggested CityDesk to a number of people and small organisations as a perfect tool for creating web pages and I personally set up a site for the science dept of the school where I work.
I agree. If not a Home Edition how about reduced non-profit or education pricing?
A $75 educational edition with the same features as the Pro version would see wide use by educators. No cannibalizing of other revenue streams and great publicity for Fog Creek. Good vibe for helping students too.

A suggestion: Maybe offer a Home Edition with no or minimal support. And charge extra for support.
I would definitely urge a rethink. Your suddenly telling a group of potential customers that you don't need their money.
Today, I want Home Edition for my college junior daughter. They taught her to do websites in HTML. Today she says, "Can you make me something so I don't have to do HTML anymore?" So I'm thinking about telling her to do a bunch of 50 file sites.
I should mention, we often offer 50% discounts to certain 501(c)(3) charities and nonprofits -- if you're using CityDesk for a nonprofit ask firstname.lastname@example.org if you apply.
