To clarify, I didn't figure anyone was talking about my product when complaining about prices. I've never had anyone tell me I charge too much, but I've had more than a few tell me I charge too little.
My comment was mainly to make people aware that the authors of the other software put in significant time in developing their product. A lot of people don't realize just how much time this consumes. I was a full time poker player, so I could afford to put the time and effort into PA Hud at the beginning. A lot of these developers have full time jobs and families and they sacrifice a lot of time to put these tools out. It's only fair if they choose to charge.
That said, competition is what makes great products. I had to consider free and commercial competition when I decided to sell my program. I can't put out crap and expect people to pay for it. I am constantly improving my product to make it worth the money and to keep people spreading the word.
PA Hud came into existance because I wanted to offer competition against a commercial product that I felt was charging too much for what it did. If anyone feels I charge too much or my product isn't any good, they can develop their own version. That, in turn, would force me to improve my product. In the end, the people who use the software win.
Also, about people making new user names for their products. I had the "PokerAce" name months before I came out with PA Hud. Someone suggested I named the software after my user name and it stuck.
