Funny, $169 for a program that you have a free alternative to:

Granted, it is a command line tool, but nothing beats the price. 169 bucks for a GUI seem a bit excessive.

You get what you pay for

That only supports 1D barcodes.  The price is excessive for those few people who know how to use a command line.  For the rest of us, it’s a piece of commercial software that makes barcodes easy to use.  It also integrates with InDesign, a big plus for those who are in InDesign every day.
