Well, I guess it’s better than the $40,000 they were charging to patch their products for Daylight Savings Time compatibility last year…

The $4,000 fee is a dramatic price cut from the $40,000-per-product charge that Microsoft set in 2006. “We believe we had to do the right thing for our customers, so we did something on the fee,” explained Sweatt. “There is a cost involved in producing this, but we’re not making money on [the $4,000]. It recovers just a part of the cost of development and providing support.”
