Ouch. I really don't agree on that point. They only have to pay if they are 
forced to by proprietary software licensing practices. There are many free 
software business models with which you could have made just as substantial 
revenu as with a closed, proprietary model.

I'm disapointed that I am forced to pay for a product that, under all 
appearances, was free (because I started developing my software 3 months 
ago). Changing graphics toolkits would cost me more in time (and rent :) than 
a Business Edition Black Addr license.
