When I subscribed to Usenext their trial offer did not even mention that a software had to be downloaded. After subscribing, I was told that the software would be free. But it happened to be free only for windows.
Now I have to pay for he software AND bother installing X11 !

Beware of Usenext, their free trial subscription to the UseNext service has some other dangerous tricks.
For example : although "free" the trial has an option that allows fast speed download and this option is paying even in the trial mode. Moreover the paying "option" is prechecked, meaning that you have to succeed unchecking it to avoid paying. Even worse, the paying option can re-activate itself automatically if the file is not found. In other words what you want could be unaccessible with the free trial mode and you would be switched to the high speed mode and pay. Don't ask why it becomes accessible in the paying download mode.

No surprise Usenext has such a small market share.

Agreed.

The software crashes and is not very easy to work with.

I just tried to cancel after about 7 days and was told that I did not have a trial period. I would not have any money refunded. So, now I'm stuck with a service that I can't use.

Look elsewhere.

X11 ist already built in with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopoard), so only 10.4 users may have to install X11 from the Mac OS X install disc.

- if you have Mac OS X 10.4 installed:
you need to install X11 from the Mac OS X 10.4 install disc, if X11 is not already installed on your system.

- if you have Mac OS x 10.5 installed:
no extra installation of X11 needed, since Leopard already has X11 installed
