Freeware and Shareware

It has been noted that NewsFire has “unexpectedly” made the transition from “freeware” to shareware. I put “freeware” in quotes because it never was freeware, and I never said it was freeware – it was in a public beta release. Its eventual transition to shareware was always planned and this plan has always been public knowledge. I put “unexpected” in quotes because this was publicly known since NewsFire version 0.1 in August 2004.

It’s unclear to me how 7 months forewarning is insufficient.

The NewsFire website has clearly stated it would be shareware from the very beginning. It’s a shame that some people chose to simply ignore my words and then blame me for their failing.
