A few people have written me to ask if it’s possible to give Aalto as a gift. Yes, it’s easy, and you can do it using the website.
If you want to give Aalto to a friend, just make an account and buy the software in the usual way, but enter your friend’s first and last name for the account instead of yours. You can also make a username (login) that your friend will want. However, use your own email so that the PayPal transaction will go through. Then when it's time, you can give your friend the account login and password, and he or she can change the password and email using the website. I hope it's pretty simple—let me know if you have any questions.
I'm off my normal support hours until Thursday the 27th. Meanwhile, I'm going to listen to a lot of eighties vinyl, eat a lot, and be thankful for the company of loved ones. Merry Christmas to all!
