Today I looked for some tools for Microsoft Windows platform. Got some results marked as freeware so I looked deeply at them (why to pay if can get tool for free). And what did I saw? Definition of ‘freeware’ has been changed during last years… Now it means:

Freeware: software which you can try for free but any usage need you to register and pay $$$.

For me it is just ‘demo’, ‘trial’ version but not freeware.
