This is very nice, but a bit misleading. When you visit your website, it
is a free download (a 30 day trial). If you are going to list a 'free'
tool.. how about letting people know it is a free download of a 30 day
trial. IT is NOT a free tool. I don't think Russ wants this list to be a
free advertising/misleading list. While your product may be good, you
sure lost my business by not being honest with us.
