The ever-changing world…
IcoFX, Window Clippings, WinSnap and .NET Reflector are commercial computer programs that has once been freeware. I still keep their old freeware versions and I plan to keep them perpetually.
Paint.net has also once been free and open-source but is now just freeware. Oh, and let us not forget MediaCoder which was once free and open-source but is now an advertisements-supported trialware – virtually, free to look but not free to touch.
A side note: Adobe has started charging licensing fees for using “premium” features of Adobe Flash platform in their software.
No, I am not complaining; just reporting the history.
