CARL, Nobody ever said software *MUST* be free of charge, not even Richard Stallman, the market will decide whether prices are viable and sustainable. People just prefer FREE! both in price AND licensing terms.

Why is this a bad idea? Please explain. Did you pay for your computer and monitor for your business? Why not pay for software used for your business? Why must software be free of charge? I am open to discussing the licensing model. I am not open to the Bank of America using our software for free. -Carl At 5/21/01 10:15 PM +0200, you wrote:
