    Don't know for sure, but my inclination is to think the low price is for an upgrade from previous versions.

    On the second question: I have Painter X, and it works fine. I'm not interested in any new version of Painter unless and until they re-code it to:

    1. Be more stable
    2. Make better use of multiple processors
    3. Improve stroke rendering speed
    4. Boost layer handling abilities (right now, more layers = way slower)

    In addition, I'm sure I'm not using Painter X to it's full potential right now, so there's little need for me to upgrade. There's a lot to the program right now, and I wonder how much more added "features" will slow it down even more.

    That's my free advice. Remember what you paid for it.
