I disagree. Graphit as sold by Sigma and direct from Erithacus Software sells
for roughly $500 on quantities of a maybe 300-400 per year. The author is a 
one-man company doing it in his spare time (away from his lectureship). It is
a very sophisticated windows program and is rated very highly.

I have no financial interest in this company.
