1) This is not even a demo, if you don't consider only showing a window asking for your serial to be a demo. And no, there is no serial included in the downloaded package. 2) Why would I want to shell out 100 bucks if there's MacTeX out there for free, with a great editor such as TeXShop (or others)? Especially if I can't test it?

OK, now someone's trying to be funny (and succeeding). 2011, two years on, and we've progressed through another 6 builds, but who knows what's changed... Hmm, maybe the progress is evident in the screenshots? Yep, making great progress there: hasn't anyone else worked out that 10.7 and MacOS 7.5 are the same thing yet? Seriously W T F...

Wow: who would have thought? 2.2 Beta in August of 2007 (tragically late to the party), and 2.2b11 in August 2009. Let's see: OS X was released in 2001: I've got it... textures is software made by Rip van Winkle. Seriously though, I have some sympathy for the poor folk who coughed up for this thing in the hope that a decent product would emerge in a finite amount of time. Not looking good... What comes first: the heat death of the universe or Textures for OS X?

Or... you could just install TeXLive for nothing which comes with everything you need, including a choice of editors.

Read MacTeX where I put TeXLive. I've put it up as a suggestion.

Already in the Mac Classic times, I found that Textures was outrageously expensive for something build upon the free TeX engine. The interface was OK, but certainly not worth the $600-$700 it cost at the time, so I settled for the not-so-user-friendly but free UNIX alternatives. Now they want to charge $100 for a beta OS X version that you cannot even try before buying, when there are truly excellent free alternatives (e.g. the award-winning TeXShop). They must be totally out of their mind.

OK, consider my first point deleted; it's been tagged commercial. Still, I'd like to know the benefits over free alternatives.
