I would like to confirm this to everyone listening who hasn't bought the
product yet. I learned most of the things I know about CVS before I got
the eBook and it took me ages. I can confirm that the eBook alone is worth
the license fee, even without support it would. It saves numerous hours in
finding out how everything works and how things can or should be done. The
online manual is nothing compared to this!
And I'm not getting paid to say this ;-)

I was afraid this question would come but I have to admit: I honestly
Maybe you can add a message to the website before you can download the
free version. Simply open a page with a clear description of the
advantages of buying the product. And the download link at the bottom. A
page without anything else, no other links, just a letter to the
downloader, it would be encouraging to read if it is like a surprise: "Hey
I didn't expect this, let's read it." Not the typical license agreement
nobody reads anyway.
