Goodness, this product is well overpriced

If you're looking at it as a DocBook word processor, sure. But oXygen does quite a bit more than that. Check out the feature matrix:


oXygen Author is priced appropriately for what it is: a piece of a high end publication system.
Compared to top notch Java IDE (Jetbrains) or top-notch java profiler (YOurkit) I think the price is expensive. It may have a vast feature matrix, but it is essentially an Xml Editor/Processor I doubt many customers use the majority of features.
But I guess this discussion is offtopic.
