    "Not 'free to try'"

    June 19, 2011  |   By croupiac


    Has historically been a good application, well integrated into Mac OS X.


    It's not "free to try". Not even a little bit. You can't touch it until you hand over money, making it a Commercial distribution.


    The bait-and-switch tactic is morally questionable.

    On the up-side, it is legal to compile and re-distribute it yourself. The open-source license requires this.

    All but the latest version of NeoOffice is free to try and to use forever without paying a cent. Get you facts straight before you libel someone.

    You're right !
    Version 3.2+ requires a compulsory $10 donation.
    However, you can still get v3.1.2 Patch 9 for free.
