RPG compiler used to cost something like $2500, now it costs $8000 but
includes WDSC for "Free". They couldn't sell the C compiler enough to
support it, nor the other items, only RPG made a lot of money for IBM. So
the repackaged everything and charge you one price and give you the
impression that it is "free". Apparently some people believe it.
