this is not for general discussion. This is a question SolidWorks Corp needs to answer. Thank you. Ed Varga, SW user.

They still have the Veterans Discount going.
This works very well from what I have heard. The veteran would need to buy it him/herself. I think it's less than $100.
I used it about 2 years ago while in school to improve my skills with Solidworks.
The pdf David linked to with the veterans discount details says $20. Pretty cheap....
