So you don't like paying a lot for software, or can't fit it in your budget. Free is always a good price. Now this deal is for a photo editing product which has evolved through several iterations over the years and continues to improve. It's never been truly expensive (by whose definition?) but this is a great deal for someone looking to try a different set of tools, who feels they are missing something from the true open source free offerings, or who knows their needs don't justify the price of any Adobe product.
If you can part with $40 temporarily and are diligent in processing your rebate request, you'll get your $40 back and have a nice image editing app on your computer. Hard not to lose!
Oh, Newegg operates a very legit, reliable, and nighly recognized online business and is one of the best places on the web for computer (and increasingly other markets) hardware, sometimes software, as this deal demonstrates.
Corel Paintshop Pro X4 - FREE after rebate
BTW, I use the previous X3 version and have found many plugins created for the current version of Photoshop work with Paintshop Pro, so you won't miss out entirely on that extensibility by not spending hundreds on PS.
