This software really isn't "freeware" -- "time-bomb-ware" would be much more accurate. You know the drill: "We'll call this 'freeware,' but each version is only good for a month or two, and soon after that we'll start charging."
Look... Freeware is just that -- free. No time bombs. No bait and switch. No tricking people to test your beta software for you by listing your software as "free" when you clearly intend to charge for it from the very beginning.
Sometimes someone has to call a duck a duck.
