To be pedantic for a second...

Eric3 is free on all platforms. However it requires PyQt and Qt which are
not free on all platforms. The idea of a commercal .exe version of Eric3
is a possibility which wouldn't require PyQt and Qt licenses and would be
priced to compete with the alternatives.

Let me or Detlev know if you would be interested in this.
