Why do you think they first released single programs, which they sold and then produced a package, with those single programs inside, and sold it again?
I'm not sure what you mean here, but I never mentioned anything like this.
They need to produce income, people who only cherry pick what they need don't produce that kind of income as we would be talking 1 digit euro prices then.
Granted, you'll get a discount if you bought single programs from that package before, but in reality they wouldn't sell as much copies if they would let people pick single programs. (I, for one, waited months before deciding to get me the Enhancer package, still haven't installed it, no pressing software on it)
We're going way OT here, so I'll keep it very short. If the strategy is to force customers to pay for stuff they otherwise would not buy, then I simply can't agree. There are other profitable ways to sell software.
wrt to PartitionWizard...i haven't had this program on my X1 from day 1 as it was unusable due to unsupported hardware (X1K, pretty lame if you ask me).
I don't even have it installed anymore, they took it out of the system completely, funny thing is, it's still an entry in the "ContextMenus" program.
Never bothered with it again and i don't think it will magically reappear anytime soon, especially not with a new sfs version.
In the past (including the AOS 3.x days) it helped me fix partitions and/or recover data. Not having any tool to do that is not a good thing. And having had it as part of the OS and seeing it moved to a third-party bundle is not nice.
