I already had a "Platform Account" used for previous paid for versions of Komodo IDE so the upgrade was painless for me. I use Komodo IDE with Strawberry Perl and occasionally with Python so aside from forking out for the IDE I haven't paid ActiveState a dime. Not sure what their financial model is going forward, but I'm sure happy for the free upgrade.
The IDE has a great debugger for Perl and a great editor. I've been using it for many years and often copy and paste from other editors so I can use Komodo magic. It's faster to copy and paste code from Eclipse to reformat it in Komodo than it is to fight Eclipse's stupid imitations and arse backward editing processes! (Actually Code Composer Studio, but it uses Eclipse under the hood.)
