Yes, there used to be an edition like that. Graphic Converter made a lot 
of sales by forcing a 10-second splash on its free version. It was just 
annoying enough. Many mobile apps force ads on the user, which is even 
more annoying, but that may be going too far.

But we don't have any data to show whether the splash approach actually 
increased sales by much, or whether there are enough users who would buy 
a hobbyist version to warrant the development time.
