When you are selling to such an exclusive and specific market though, subscription entails nonstop updates and technical support. Like they have to pay at least 3 or 4 people to just provide support for their product, so at 130k per year, their bottom line is probably quite close.
Most of it goes to trainers (mostly ex-military who go around and specialize in teaching the software, and how to best use it). Their updates are fairly far and few between, well... public updates.
But yea, I've been thinking about picking up a commercial license for a while for myself, because my current license is through the publisher for our project and I want to do some additional work on the side (also our publish is slow as crap and I don't think I've even heard from anyone there in a year...)
Hopefully I can get away with a single seat and not have to pick up a DN license.
