are there any other diffs between silkperformer and the soa edition apart from the 5 VU limit on soa edition?
I can't say... I think this a question you should be asking or reading up on in the Borland site or the release notes. You should be able to find out more information there.
I like what i know and I know what i like
I don't believe that all of the plug-ins are available for the demo version (or thatís how it used to be)
But in the end doesn't it all come down to BEER? Beer is the ultimate answer to all questions in the universe so yes the answer to your question is BEER.
