Every company should have free trial version?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Discount Christian Software & Books : One Thread

I'm trying to figure out which Bible Study Software to spend $150 to $200 on. The choices are bewildering, especially for a beginning computer person. Epiphany offers a 30 day free ( $5 for shipping ) trial version. What a great idea! Like the internet providers offering free trials. With this computer stuff you just have to try it to tell if you'll like it. Verbal descriptions only go so far. Then, after 30 days, you can give it to a friend to try it, too, on and on. Why don't all software producers offer this? Maybe the involved scholarly programs might not want to do this, but those aimed at the growing number of new computer users who are Christians and realize: Hey, this would be great to really study, should offer this service!

Dear Jim,

Believe it or not, other companies are beginning to take this "30 free trial" software to heart. Aside from Epiphany Software (maker of Bible Explorer 2.0), Nelson's Word Direct offers the Nelson's Electronib Bible Reference Series for 30 days and Biblesoft (maker of PC Study Bible) will soon release its own 30 day free trial.
