Question Free during the beta testing, but what about after that

According to their web site this is free during the public beta, but it doesn't make any promises about once the software comes out of beta.

I have seen quite a few companies do this in the past and as soon as they come out of the beta testing phase they start charging for the software.

I agree with ColoWeb, I would stick with OpenOffice which is a complete office program rather than a stripped down text editor.

IMO Corel is just trying to hook people with this software and then get you to buy their WordPerfect Office suite once you realize how limited the Lightening software really is.

It's not a free version of Word Perfect, it's a collaboration\organizational utility much like Microsoft Sharepoint.
