I called Oxford Molecular, who have taken MacVector over from Eastman
Kodak, a few days ago. While the software works well for most things (hate
the sequence alignments it gives) the price is $2450 US for the basic
license. I also asked about upgrading our 4 user personal copies to a 4
user network version - the price for getting almost equivalent usage but
without having to unplug the EVE key each time you want to go to a
different computer over $5000 US !!!! I hate to think what the price of
the Network version would be from scratch.

PS Anyone want to form a PowerPlant work team and write a shareware DNA
sequence handling package ;-)
