Mike:  Take a look at the original post again.  He wasn't moaning about 
*everything* not being free!!  The complaint was against the people who 
use tax-financed research funds to develop a program, then turn around and
start selling that same program in a glitzy new package for lots of money.
I have nothing against a bare bones shareware version and a commercially sold 
version with manuals and upgrades.  I dislike paying twice for the same thing!

Jerry.
