Howdy Richmond,

I agree, rentals could be another good option, with just the right 
price/time to discourage abuse but be workable to those who need a 
middle option.

Good story. Mark also mentioned hobby developers trying to cover the 
cost of dev devices and so on - that's true.

And even people doing freeware don't necessarily want to release source. 
Some freeware products have grown into successful commercial products 
the next time around.

I'd be supportive of any middle option ideas other than Free Commercial. 
I share your view that it would be a meltdown, and hopefully you're 
right that it would never happen.

Great discussion. I'm going to truly bail out into lurk mode again; I 
have limited energy from health and have to budget most of it onto 
projects rather than discussions, but this one was too important to sit out!

Best wishes,

Curry K.
