This is more of a rant than anything else..
While the US dollar and the Euro might be close in value from time to time they aren't the same currency.
1 US dollar is worth less than 1 Euro.
However there are software vendors out there that think it's "acceptable" to charge the same to both their European customers as they do their US based ones - simply changing the currency symbol, but not the figure.
So a European company gets charged €10 while their US counterpart only pays $10 for the same product!
And people wonder why European companies have difficulties competing on price!
