while I really think that FDT is worth its' price, I can understand
your reluctance to buy it, given how much $200 is in Brazil.
You might have another option though: Powerflasher has made a pledge
to give every active member of osflash a license for free, so if you
already started any project or have any code that you can release as
an open source project, this might be your way to a FDT license.
