Not only that but you also have to register as a user of their web site
to be able to download it.
Since personal information has become a good nowadays this could even be
considered a payment (you pay with your good name ;)
Stefano: A free download does not constitute free software.
Especially if the format of the data to be viewed (only) by the
application is created with proprietary software then the use of the
viewer-only application is limited.
Consider releasing the source code under some OSI certified license and
we are back in busines ;)
