My company is currently in the process of procuring an upgrade to an existing system.
The software was originally developed by a programmer employed by our company, who later on left the company, with the source code, and started his own company.
Now, we need to buy an upgraded version of the software from our former employee ...
How would you guys feel about a demand to see the source code, in order to evaluate how much has been changed/upgraded, in order to evaluate if the price they are asking is right?
I can't help but feeling just a little bit in the recieving end of some "manly love" paying for software we originally developed in house ... Any thoughts?
