Any plans for academic pricing?

As in pretty hefty discounts! To be honest, $30/user/year is going to be a hard sell even if we just count staff, let alone students.

Pricing is a funny thing, though. I'm guessing that $30 is set to look good against exchange, and is not that different from Sun's regular JES pricing. The Sun academic rate is something like $2, and that's probably not a bad number. In general, though, the quality of the implementation or the features offered doesn't necessarily align well with what those holding the purse strings are prepared to accept.
