Ableton releases Live Intro: A great intro to Live

Ableton released Live Intro that seems to be a replacement for Live LE. Live Intro can get you into Live at a very low price point so that you can learn how to use it and decide if you like it. You then have the option to upgrade. Don't let Intro fool you though. This is a full featured software package in which it's only limitation is quantity of features, not quality.
