New: Photoshop Express for free.
This confirms what I observed years ago: as software matures, an increasing portion of it becomes cheaper, and then free.
Heck, if you buy a Mac today, you have all the software you'll ever need, for most people. Browser, email, word processor, bladiblah.
And then you can include iWork and iLife, two packages which includes so much productivity that you don't ever have to be bored again, for a price which nobody can call anything but a bargain. iLife is included for free with every new iMac, and iWork is only eighty bucks. Ten years ago getting something like all those things would have cost a small fortune.
