How long do you think a developer should provide free updates for his software? 2 years as with Day One, 5 years, 10 years?
And which developer do you know that can make a living from not charging for updates for more than 2 years? The only one I know is Keith Blount from Scrivener - he is able to earn enough money from new customers. But I think that is a rare exception in this business.
