I too bought a developer license, after trying out the free version, which really impressed me. The preceding comment (Mark D Kerr) about the developer solution's complexity is valid on one level, but not in any sense I can decipher from the commenter himself.

I do think, as he suggests, that he should have waited and tried it out a bit before "grading" it. What's with this idea of commenting and rating something you haven't yet explored?

But more to the point: I guess you gotta ask yourself how much effort you want to expend understanding something that succeeds so well, using this kind of complexity. For me, it's a great educational tool: The separation of interface from logic, the efficiency of where it goes and what it does, everything I've seen in the developer edition, in fact, is remarkably elegant. I'm kind of psyched, frankly, if it means I learn something.

And I think trying to compare this calendar with the available "simpler" and "free" versions is misleading on its face. For a couple of reasons: It's pretty obvious from the developer's site that there is a simple, free, version available (wtf!!)--whose code is wide-open to the user/developer.

In fact, I'm continually amazed at the generosity of this company in its free stuff. I guess primarily because they're actually FREE. I mean, these guys are giving away whole solutions, nothing's locked, there's no time limit, no limited funcionality, etc. And each free piece I've tried out is far better than what I've tested, and paid for, from other developers.

The more complex versions are exactly that: more complex. in exchange, they do an awful lot, and they too do it better, and more elegantly, than any I've seen elsewhere.

As to the learning curve: There's
support available, and from my experience the developer is really responsive. The site has FAQs, mailing lists, & forums, for crying out loud. Even scripts that get a bit hairy are well-commented out: plenty of ##notes along the scriptsteps to let you know just what's going on.

So the argument that simple, free solutions exist from other sources seems both obvious, and ludicrous, seeing as these guys aren't denying you just that.

3 stars? No offense intended, but if the gripe is that this software is too difficult for someone to wrap their head around--in light of all that the developer offers by way of help--free versions, support, FAQs, forums, mailing lists--the 3-star rating seems less a reflection on the software than on the limits, and weird impulsiveness, of the commenter.
