    For a number of years I used this and liked it. Not sure why they would do this other than their pay model isn't selling of the shelves. I have to wonder if it is still a excellent tool or has it slipped? Right now all that link ask's is your opinion on should it go open source. So people will say, hmmmm, should I pay for it or do I want it free. Kind of a no brainer for most folks.

    I think it's more a case of it becoming less relevant than anything.

    Regardless of whether or not it's still relevant (a never-ending debate), the last 2 iterations (2012 nad ,especially 2013) are a LOT faster than previousl ones.
