Not yet. I'm going to try to get to putting Linux on my box this weekend. I'm still knee-deep in hardware in the server room.
If I run into issues with DVDFab, I'll just keep one of the lower-spec'd boxes on Windows in the server room and use it for disc ripping.

Customer-A & Customer B are into joint venture.
Customer-A's manager directly interacts with us on a product.
Customer-A is a long time one, so he pays only 20% of the product's cost.
Customer-A introduces Customer-B.
Since they are in JV, I assumed, everything is transparent.
Over a conversation, Customer-B asks, how much we charge for Product-X for customer-A.
I say the discounted cost. i.e $200. (When actual cost is $1000)
Just after a day, Customer-A dials and warns me not to disclose the discount details.
He says it's a disgrace for their brand to pay such a low amount for the product/service,
(but he wouldn't pay the $1000 as well )
He wants to project to customer-B that he's paying $1000, the actual cost.
But, now that I had already shared the details to customer-B.
What a mess!
Now I'm just keeping quiet. Should I go back to Customer-B & say the shared info was wrong.
or should I dial back customer-A and say it's too late to correct this.
(Please excuse the unprofessional data sharing. This is how things working here in mini-start-ups, since we tend to be customer friendly, we end up getting roughed up like this. But personally both these customers people are nice behaving)
Just tell customer B that you were drunk at the time and thought he was asking for the size of your bar tab... That should do the trick!

If you can, avoid the topic. Otherwise, unless you're personally responsible for setting pricing, I'd pass the buck. Say something like: "Sorry, I'm not certain about pricing, you should speak with PERSON/DEPARTMENT".
You need to go back to A and tell them you already let the cat out of the bag. A backtracking lie to B would be unethical, and it's better that A finds out that you disclosed the size of their discount from you than from B.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
