A Midas Rich Text LSX 3.x server license costs $2500 US for the first server (and $1500 US for each additional). But look at what that translates to in various currencies compared to a year ago and two years ago:
|Date||Euros||Australian dollars||Japanese Yen||Canadian dollars||British pound|
|Nov. 15, 2004||1,925.30 ||3,250.38 ||263,975 ||2,983.50 ||1,346.69 |
|Nov. 15, 2003||2,121.88 ||3,471.98 ||270,900 ||3,258.50 ||1,482.10 |
|Nov. 15, 2002||2,489.54 ||4,439.71 ||301,300 ||3,938.50 ||1,583.58 |
So, a merchant in Munich would have paid €2490 for that server license in 2002, and would have paid only €2122 a year later and would only pay €1925 now. That is almost 24% less in two years, and 10% less in just the last year. Similarly, a banker in Brisbane would save almost 27% from two years ago, almost 7% from a year ago. A trader in Tokyo would save over 12% from two years ago, almost 3% from a year ago. A health care firm from Halifax, Nova Scotia would save 24% from two years ago, over 8% from last year. And last, but not least, a law firm from London would save 15% from two years ago, over 9% from a year ago.
Some pretty significant savings for those who buy while the dollar is weak.
