they’re really trying to get rid of Shade 7!!!
They’re trying to get more people to know about it, and increase their userbase. It’s a good way to do it, too, since it doesn’t cost so much producing copies of software, in comparison to hardware.

I’ve got my copy, registered it, but haven’t had the time to try it out yet…
