Indeed. I wouldn't pay commercial prices for a PIC C compiler for home
projects. The 'Lite' version of SourceBoost that I actually bought is a
whopping $5 and in spite of its RAM/ROM limitations, it's been good enough
for me. If I ever sell a product that uses it, I'd need the commercial
version at $150 - fair enough IMO.
