	You can get the upgrade from Applix for $79 or the full package
for $99.  To me, the $20 was not worth the hassle of having an "upgrade
only" CD (that's what's in the package).  I also heard that someone else
(not sure who) is offering a $79 "office suite package" which is the
latest Applixware bundled with some additional apps.  Sound like you
can get the full version for the price of the upgrade with some indeterminant
goodies thrown in...  Don't have details on that though.
