Winpopup Lan Messenger To Abandon Software Activation

02-27-2008 11:36 AM CET | IT, New Media & Software

Press release from: Fomine Software

Fomine Software announces today that its flagship product, Winpopup LAN Messenger, will no longer use the software activation technique to combat end-user piracy, and abandon the time-based expiration of the freely downloadable evaluation version by offering evaluation users three free licenses for Winpopup LAN Messenger.

Activation seemed a great idea at the time as it promised to limit casual piracy by disallowing running additional copies of software products without proper licensing. After analyzing feedback as well as privacy, security and network accessibility concerns from its customers, Fomine Software decided to abandon software activation altogether effective immediately.

Fomine Software would like to thank all customers for their continuous support and feedback that made it possible to maintain and improve Winpopup LAN Messenger.

First Three Come Free

Fomine Software strongly believes in unlimited, un-crippled software distributed on try-before-you-buy basis. Most try-before-you-buy products come as feature-locked, crippled, time-limited or nag-screened demo versions. The controversy of locking or crippling the product’s features is obvious, as the users have no chance to test the features they need, which challenges the whole idea of the evaluation version. Locking the free demo version after a certain number of days or uses seems as a better compromise, only till you think about the time invested by the customer in evaluating the product.

Fomine Software opted to reward its customers for downloading and evaluating their software instead of charging for it. Effective immediately, every customer who downloads Winpopup LAN Messenger gets three free licenses for the product. The free licenses effectively allow connecting up to three users on the same local area network. Unlike competitors, Fomine Software allows both private and commercial use of the free licenses. Need more than three licenses? Just pay for the rest of the pack! If your network has five users, you only have to pay for two additional licenses, as the first three come free!

The new evaluation policy employed by Fomine Software allows using the freely available Winpopup LAN Messenger for private or commercial use on a local area network for unlimited time while not limiting its features in any way. You are free to download and use Winpopup LAN Messenger on your network with up to three instant messaging clients. Shall you need more than three users communicate over the LAN, additional user licenses are readily available.


A fully featured, unlimited demo-version is available for evaluation as a free download from http://www.winpopup-lan-messenger.com/

Outsourcing LAN Management
For most companies and organizations, managing a Local Area Network (LAN) is a balancing act. On the one hand, LANs are indispensible to any organization’s operations. On the other hand, LANs are costly to manage and require skills that many organizations cannot afford. Organizations tend to follow two directions in regard to LAN management. One is to hire in-house staff. This approach makes sense for larger organizations, but is
