[edit] Testimonials?

Hmm. I have an opinion of Tinderbox that *isn't* a testimonial. Perhaps I should just keep it to myself. --RB 16:11, 7 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Hey, you can add it if you want. Blame the software template for not giving you a space :) --Duien 16:23, 7 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Where's my blaming hammer? --RB 18:31, 13 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Testimony can be used to acquit or convict a defendant. You should add it. Personally, Tinderbox makes my eyes bleed. But that's not constructive criticism. --JamesRifkin 15:44, 14 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Tinderbox is an infuriating work of genius. I just wish the designers (if such there are) had heard of Cocoa. Or even Apple HIG. --RB 17:57, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Some Cocoa would definitely be nice. For instance, a standard text view in the text window so it doesn't randomly stop being antialiased and forget its text colors while rerendering. --Duien 18:44, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)

[edit] Shareware?

I'm a little unclear on exactly how TInderbox is shareware. Yeah, you can download a demo. But you can download demos of Macromedia products too, and nobody's about to call them shareware. What quality are you using to identify it as shareware? --Duien 21:43, 15 Apr 2005 (EDT)

I have not purchased Tinderbox, so I don't know all the details, but according to their website: Download Tinderbox. You'll get a free demonstration. Give it a spin, then order your own copy: we'll send you a personal code that will unlock the full power of Tinderbox. That's why I put it under shareware. Is that description inaccurate? --JamesRifkin 13:31, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Wikipedia:shareware: payment is required per the terms of the license past a set period of time (although some consider this requirement to cause the software to be not shareware but a demo) - I think that's pretty universal now. Tinderbox is not shareware, in the way most people understand it. You can download a demo, but it's limited in what it can do. Until you pay, that is... --RB 17:55, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Personally, I've always understood shareware to imply that, if payment is required, it's a pretty small amount. I'm gonna change the page back. --Duien 18:27, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)
