Rant 2

And another thing...

Just looked at a web site which had the quick time trailer for the next Angel. As I did so Quicktime came up with a message that there was a new version 6.5 available, and did I want to install it.

So I say yes, and spend several minutes going through screens before I get to the one after installation begins that says (and I paraphrase) "oh by the way, if you carry on your copy of Quicktime Pro won't work any more, you'll have to buy a new registration key to get the extra features of pro."

Fortunately it appears to be possible to exit setup at this point without harming the existing setup, but I want to know why they are charging for what appears to be a minor enhancement rather than complete revision, and why this isn't stated before you download their setup program etc.
