Hey jjj - We well and truly appreciate the developers point of view, nobody denies the right for developers to earn a buck for their efforts - most, if not all, of any revenue derived will generally go toward further development anyway. If that's what it takes to keep freeware free then I guess it could be described as a 'necessary evil'. It's the manner in which they go about it which often causes concern: if a developer practices full disclosure and is open and honest about any bundled extras, PLUS applies a system of opt-in - we have absolutely no problem with that. Even an opt-out system under the aforementioned circumstances is acceptable - not optimal, but adequate nonetheless.
As with most things in life, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about things. If developers bundle in a fair and honest way - no problem.
