Scared of "free trials" - they're never free - not to me at least - as there's a lot of time spent setting up, learning, going through the paces, and then documenting and cleaning up after the trial expires. Free trials are **bleep** expensive!
So what I am interested in, instead - if a given product sparks my interest - is a non-nagging non-spying low-maintenance "free edition" that is close enough to a full featured one, and that I could take my time evaluating. Bonus points if the free edition can be actually useful - like VMAN, a "free" version of which appears included with NPM and/or SAM.
