Cost & Benefits
Why does the academic license for iNMR cost as much as the commercial license? Because iNMR is a product designed by users for academic research and is sold at a price that is appropriate for academic labs.
When, like in this case, there is no sponsor, all users are asked to pay a fraction of the cost of writing and maintaining the code. In exchange they get the program that does exactly what they need, a fair trade not often seen in software development.
Why people prefer iNMR to some of the free alternatives?
