10. Why Charge?
You may ask why we have introduced a charge for the NewMDSX software. The reason is simple. The development of MDS(X) from the DOS library of programs into the Windows NewMDSX version, the purchase, development and maintenance of this website to disseminate the software and the rewriting of the manuals and help files have all been undertaken by the current team, none of whom are now full-time employed in academia, in their own time and at their own expense. The reluctant decision to charge for the software was made to recompense the out-of pocket expenses of the team and to ensure the continuation of the site, the availability of the software and support to its users. NewMDSX is, and will remain, a not-for-profit organisation.
