Heated discussions about NoteTab Light
- Hi everyone,
If you're not afraid of newsgroups (UseNet), you'll find a heated debate
about NoteTab Lite [sic] under news:alt.comp.freeware
You can connect to the newsgroup with a newsreader like Outlook Express or
Forte Agent, or access Deja.com through your browser by using the following
long URL (should be a single line):
A small number of users are arguing that NoteTab Light is not freeware
because of the existence of a Pro version. So they stretch the definition
of "crippleware" to describe all free programs that have a commercial
variant. Obviously, I don't agree and have posted a reply to that effect.
Those of you who enjoy debates of this nature might want to read through
the arguments <g>.
NoteTab v4.83 available from

Chin up Eric!

And please allow me to add a third line here. Free software is
nice but neither compels an author to continue to develop her
product nor does it feed the kids.
Just my 2cents.
