We have to respect the copyrights of the software put out by any company,
including Apple.

Just because a software program isn't sold or supported, doesn't mean it's
suddenly freeware.

Nobody's happy about what Apple did to the Newton -- but the Newton when
introduced was an experimental technology ahead of it's time. That's the
risk we all take buying the latest greatest neato gadget and accompanying
software. If folks want stability, they should purchase established
technologies. Even so, there's no guarantee it will be around more than 4
years -- an ancient age in our world of fast moving technology.
