I see no reason for you to stop bringing the program up. If the programs
can be made to work together then I say go for it, even if there is a
retail/commercial version. You are always going to have people complain
when they can't get something for free anymore (not saying that is the
case this time) so I would just not worry about it. My 2?, YMMV.
