actually, trading in US dollars and the whole US economy is immoral
LOL sorry couldnt resist ;-D
seriously speaking, i think the newton community has a lot of initiatives
that give users the ability to pay if they can afford it - most shareware
software is not crippled and there are ppl like s weyer that offer rebates
for those who are in need.
i think most times software developers actually consider these problems, it
was clear even in the case with smartdog - bob wanted to drop the fee, but
couldnt because of the licence cost.
pay if you can, but dont be ashamed if you cant is my devise. honestly, if i
would have been so law-abiding, i would never have learnt DTP and (as an
inevitable result of that) would never have bought photoshop.
