I complain energically against these ideas. A computing algebra system
of the complexity of Mathematica is very likely plagued with bugs. But
these bugs should be documented and on my opinion Wolfram Res. should
have an ftp-server for the download of bugfixes. If you buy something
and there goes something wrong you also would like to get this repaired
at the costs of the seller of it. I never could understand why software
companies are allowed to take money for bug fixes (there is also a very
well known operating system where the bug fixes cost a lot of money
;-)).
