Latest from the rumour mill.

Stefan Stenzel has leaked that what they ( Waldorf ) think of as an OS update may likely be a paid upgrade, but BUGFIXES is not something Waldorf will ask users money for.

Quote:
We will never charge money for
pure bugfixes, this is poor style.



Hurrah for Waldorf!

....it doesn't say they are going to actually _do_ any "pure" bugfixes either, does it?

Laughing
No, but as you know, there are a lot of OS bugs.
The reason why many users have been demanding OS upgrades are basically because of bugs. Now Stenzel actually says that a bugfix is not an OS upgrade/update. This is quite interesting.

honestly, i'm not trying to be negative (and i don't own any waldorf gear), but the wording certainly leaves room for an "upgrade" that includes bug fixes (ie, you would be paying for more than a bug fix), and perhaps no "standalone free bug fix"...this doesn't seem that outlandish a reading to me.

Hmm.. we could manufacture some in-depth high tech journalism?

"Did skidmarks bring Waldorf down?"
