Decided to buy V10 pro ( no way ultimate though) as with discount it was not too expensive and I can play with it and not worry about 30 day limits. Also it may help spur on development if there are respectable sales (trying to be optimistic). Being using for a couple of hours with a current project and playing around with problems from this forum and have not produced any errors (so far), but next couple of weeks will be a better test.
Don't use v10 for any real work or new development yet. It has some major issues that will cause serious data loss.
If you open an existing database you created in version 9.42 or lower, it's converted to v10 as expected. If you then run the database optimisation you will have a major loss of data. The entire database becomes corrupt every single time.
If you even create a totally new database in v10. Run the “check” in maintenance mode to check it's integrity. You will find the database is corrupt straight away.
If you don't perform the check and you populate the database with content, all manner of strange things happen which lead to the database being corrupt and unable to be even opened.
I think it was Pat that mentioned in another post about entrepreneurs in Mikhail's position. But I think the real issue is that he isn't an entrepreneur. He's a developer. Has some great ideas, produces some fantastic software but he's not looking to grow a hugely successful business. I get the impression from the various bits and pieces on the web that he's involved in that he's just happy with the money that he has coming in from those. He'll do just enough to keep things ticking over. His ambition isn't to create a business. That's my impression any way. And it's just that, an impression.

I bet he's making nothing at all from his other websites because if you look at his other websites, its either discontinued very old software, or take the “Do my App” website for example. This Do My App site is a strange puppy.
It has no function at all. It doesn't allow you to create anything. The website doesn't even show a single screen shot of Do My App. How strange is that.
